80's VFX, part two - of page turns and cube rolls

Hi,

I'm back with more questions on reproducing old video effects...this time from the mid 80's. Specifically, I'm looking to reproduce two things in the linked video - the page turn at 0:16, and the "inverted 3D cube" rotation from then to 0:25 - preferably using something that can be easily adapted for different-sized precomped layers (I'm a firm believer in precomping everything I possibly can).







Thank you in advance and Merry Christmas. :)

oh it's you again ☺

[Calvin Hones] " the page turn at 0:16"
not so much of a page turn. you can use a distort effect like corner pin or CC power pin and keyframe the corners

[Calvin Hones] " and the "inverted 3D cube" rotation from then to 0:25"
set your layer to 3d and offset it's anchor point back in Z space

now just animate the Y rotation



when you are satisfied, duplicate the layer and offset it in time



you can create precomps of these layers (leave all attributes) and place anything you want inside

Ah, anchor points...both the bane and highlight of my existence sometimes.

Thank you for the advice! I'll try these out next time one of my projects calls for it. :)
