Hi Everyone,
I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a way of texture wrapping a 2D image and wrapping it around a 3D object in a movie for TV commerical?

Thanks

Neil

Sure--use a 3D application and take your chances on the resulting look.

Probably not the answer you wanted to hear, but there you go...

If you could be a little more specific, we might be able to offer more useful suggestions.

Hi Michael,

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.

Thanks

Neil

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.

Hi Michael,

Many thanks for your help. I will take a look at the 3D option.
