For the past year, part of my morning “post production news gathering ritual” has been visiting AOTG, postPerspective and motion graphic designer John Dickinson’s Motionworks. Not long ago I saw that Dickinson (@Motionworks) had released a new set of presets and tools to be used with VideoCoPilot’s Element 3D inside of Adobe After Effects. It’s called MovieType for Element 3D.
I love Element 3D, so the idea of having more presets and tools to use made me happy. It has the ability to use near-realtime rendering to create stunning 3D objects like extruded text in seconds and without the need to jump into Cinema 4D. It’s a huge time saver for me when editing, especially when a client wants a “movie-type” title treatment but doesn’t have the time or money to outsource to a full motion graphics team.
