I'm trying to copy this popup design, and I am not sure if its made in After or 3ds max. First thing that comes to my mind is Zaxwerks 3D Invig, but I cant figure out how to add multiple 3d objects and align them in 3D space cube. Do you have any idea how this can be achieved in After?

You can construct a 3D cube from square precomps turned into 3D layers. Do it mathematically using easy units, like 100 pixels for the edge of the cube, and you can align them with precision, 50 pixels away from center, rotated 90 degree multiples. Parent them to a 3D null at 0,0,0 and thereafter use the null to manipulate the cube.

Yeah, but what about the extruded logo and text on some of the sides?

Either put the text onto one of the precomps of make it a layer of its own with a slight offset from the cube face.

If you want to do it in actual 3D, C4D comes with AE.

I think the original one was made in 3ds max because of the HDR reflections on some of the sides.

Yes, if you're trying to make something that looks exactly the same, a 3D program or a plugin. 3ds Max seems like a bit of an overkill for a rotating cube, but if you have the program, sure.

Can you suggest plugins that can make this exact same look?

- Cinema 4D Lite (free if you have AE CC)

- Element 3D (commercial, relatively inexpensive)

- Blender (free, standalone software, not plugin)

- Daz Hexagon 3D and 3D Studio Pro (almost free, standalone software)

Plus any other commercial 3D program should be able to do this.
