Trying to recreate crystal cube from an old Samsung Ad.

Hi Guys,

I am usually the type who tries to figure something out, but this has stumped me so hard.

I want to creat a crystallized cube or any general geometric shape. I provided a picture attachment for a better picture. (the cube highlighted in the red box.)

I have tried using Plexus and VC Elements 3D to no anvil.

Is this something that can only be done in C4D? or do i have to go with the long route of create 6 separate precomps that represents the face of the cube and build it from there?

Cheers,

side note, the other cubes you see in the picture represents my failed recreations.

the video clip was taken from a Samsung galaxy ii commercial called "Unleash your Fingers" @ 0:44

I am trying to do this for a school project (if you are curious to know).

I can't see your example, but from your description, I'd recommend using Cinema 4D. You get the Lite version for free with After Effects CC. This course tells you more about it and how to use it: http://www.cineversity.com/vidplaylist/cinema_4d_lite_reference

Ah, I can see the example now. You should be able to do that with Element, but C4D would work too.
