Hello all,

I've got a problem that i need your help with. I'm going to explain it as clear as i can.

I have made a composition with a camera and about 13 text(3d layers). These layers are followed with suretarget. That's working fine.

Now i want a nice 3d stroke under the 3d text. But when i make a new solid, make a line and then apply the 3d stroke, it doesn't work.

i only see my written line.

I've tried the following:

- use comp camera
- use a preset
- create a new solid

nothing works. How can i apply the 3d stroke to my camera so i can see the created stroke and how do i make it move with my suretarget presets.

Have you tried to make the solid, and use the 3D Stroke from Trapcode, with a mask, and then change the start/end over time to follow the movement with the camera?

I don't have AE in front of me right now, but that is how I did it to make the effect work a while back.. if I am understanding what you're asking.

Hope it helps!

Merry Christmas
