Video Copilot's 3D Shader Bundle includes their 3D modeling software Elements 3D and Pro Shaders 2. Pro Shaders 2 adds 250 realistic material models to Element 3D's existing library.

  • Element 3D V2 Plugin (Download)

    Video Copilot's Element 3D V2 Plugin features a redesigned interface and an updated GPU accelerated processing back end to improve render times and allows many operations to be viewed in near real-time. OBJ and C4D files can be imported along with their textures and manipulated inside Adobe After Effects. Within the plugin, complex 3D objects can be broken down into their core components and are able to be adjusted or animated individually.

    To make the workflow as efficient as possible, Video Copilot has simulated reflections and shadows that don't require ray-tracing. Without ray-tracing, rendering detailed 3D models is less processor intensive, and near real-time renders can be achieved without an expensive GPU.

    Element 3D v2 is designed for use in Adobe After Effects CS5 or newer on either PC or Mac and is compatible with 3D models created in OBJ and C4D file formats.

    Physical Shader System
    Easily create more realistic materials based on real-world object properties. Modeled materials can be dragged and dropped onto objects to model realistic surfaces. A new "glossiness" adjustment allows for a consistent change in the model's reflectivity between its specular highlights and the reflected background environment.
    Dynamic Reflection Maps
    Element 3D can cleverly create reflections in 3D objects without processor-intensive ray-tracing. It does this by creating a spherical map from the center of the object outward, and anything captured in that map is reflected on the surface of that object. This feature enables near real-time rendering of reflections.
    Ambient Occlusion Light Influence
    Creates realistic lighting gradients in shadows by reducing ambient occlusion in relation to the luminance values of an area.
    Ray-Traced Shadows and Ambient Occlusion
    For more accuracy and realism, you can use ray-traced shadows and ambient occlusion instead of the standard real-time settings. The ray-tracing is GPU accelerated through OpenCL in order to speed up render times.
    Auxiliary Animation
    Animate specific components of your 3D models by assigning those parts to one of ten available animation channels. You can use this to create simple moving rigs within After Effects. You can assign multiple parts to a single channel to have the parts move in unison.
    Sub-Surface Scattering
    Allows light to penetrate the surface of your object to have it exit at different, irregular points. This creates a look that's ideal for rendering translucent materials such as skin, leaves, and marble.
    Automatically Import MTL Files
    If an OBJ file that you want to load into Element 3D has an MTL (material) file associated with it, you can choose to import that file to retain relevant textures throughout your workflow.
  • Pro Shaders 2 Upgrade for Elements 3D V2

    Video Copilot's Pro Shaders 2 adds a library of over 300 physical textures to Elements 3D V2. The physical textures in Pro Shaders 2 are modeled after 12 real material categories like metal, concrete, wood, glass, stone, and plaster. Textures are fully tiled to seamlessly integrate into your models.
