Video Copilot 3DARCHITECTURE overview

  • 1Description

The 3D Architecture Bundle from Video Copilot provides you with Element 3D, a particle based animation and rendering engine software, and a library of tools including materials and pre-made 3D models of buildings. The bundle features Element 3D, Pro Shaders, and Metropolitan Pack: 3D Skyscrapers and Buildings.

Element 3D works natively inside of After Effects and includes its own Open GL rendering engine. With Element 3D, you can import objects as particles, as well as composite 3D images together using adjustable matte controls. The software also provides tools for anchoring 3D shapes and effects on another 3D object. The world position control allows you to utilize objects and matte effects in 3D space, for a realistic looking effect from any camera angle. The Pro Shaders software provides 200 materials to work with, and you can edit the presets to customize the appearance of the materials.

The Metropolitan Pack is a collection of 3D models of buildings designed to be used with the Element 3D plug-in. The pack features over 100 high-definition 3D models, in the form of skyscrapers and buildings, with both day and night textures. The detailed building skins feature antenna arrays and satellites, helipads, air-conditioners, vents, grime, and more. The models are available in OBJ, C4D, FBX, 3DS Max, and Vray 3D formats.

Please see the links below for more information on the various components of this bundle.

  • Element 3D

    Video Copilot's Element 3D is designed to be used whenever it will save you time or make your job easier. By working natively inside After Effects, you can make serious changes to your scene like change materials, add lights and even animate the camera without the intense re-rendering of traditional 3D.

    Element works at compositing speed, which means you can see the final look of your scene while you make changes with virtually no interruptions.

    Element uses fast Open GL rendering instead of the per-pixel Raytracing found in traditional 3D programs. The main difference with Open GL rendering is that objects do not reflect other objects in your scene. However, Element does use Reflection Mapping to generate the appearance of reflectivity without compromising speed.

    Element provides artists with 3D solution right out of the box and with our various 3D Model Packs, it is easy to find great models to use right away.

    Users with 3D experience will be able take advantage of Element's streamlined workflow to create impressive renderings in less time.

    Element uses a custom built Open GL render engine that does not require AE CS6, in fact it even supports After Effects CS3+.

    Element's render system is not related to the Open GL mode found inside the comp window. In fact it is recommended you set this to Adaptive.

    Recommended Graphic Card:
    For ideal performance we recommend at least a Geforce 285 or ATI 3870 with 1GB of VRAM.

    Rendering Rednder Farm Support: It is possible to use Element on a network render farm but it is not recommended because of inconsistencies in GPU rendering. Since Element renders with impressive speed on a single GPU it is ideal to pre-render any 3D elements before pushing to the render farm.
