I'm working on a rush job. After my initial design was OK'd and I'd moved on to the next round of concept development, THEN they sent me a pdf with design info and concept for the entire set design of the conference. I had no idea this existed. Of course, it is 100% different than the direction of my animation that they'd approved.
Their concept/design has energy and light and clean, twisting threads. Obviously, Trapcode's 3D stroke and Shine would lend themselves to that. I do own those and am familiar with them. However, I don't have a ton of experience and so I really don't have time to develop animated elements with them. I've got to spend my time and energy on incorporating their photo elements and text into the piece.
Are there any good presets or design toolkits that you can recommend that would have some nice 3D stroke animations or AE projects that I could buy?
