Thanks for replying. I need to apply a texture mapping to a new graphic element over a babies nappy in a Television Commerical. I was wondering if this is possible. I know there are builtin features, such as CC Sphere and cylinder but I want to use my own.
There are several options for you. You could use Cinema 4D (which comes free with AE).
You could use a third party plugin like Element 3d or Zaxwerks 3d Invigorator (but you'd have to build your nappy in something else).
You could use Forge Freeform (used to come with old versions of AE, now a third-party plugin.
Or you could fake the movement with the distortion tools that come with AE. I'm thinking Mesh Warp might do a pretty good job.
Ooh, or Reshape if you use tracking to follow the nappy with a mask.
