Turn Any Layered Files Into 3D Using PT Multiplane For After Effects
Tutorial by: Paul Tuersley
This tutorial and plugin allows for some pretty epic effects. We stumbled across this amazing visual by Páraic Mc Gloughlin, and wondered - How is this done? The visuals were so complex and beautiful we had to investigate. Turns out, you can re-create this stunning effect using AE-Scripts plugin called Pt Multiplane. It instantly turns any layered file (Photoshop or Illustrator) into 3D planes, allowing you to edit and move around without loosing the original camera position. Considering the potential, this could be a game changer to your workflow! Be sure to support Páraic on instagram, and download the plugin below!
From the instructor:
Instantly turn layered Photoshop or Illustrator files into 3D multiplanes. It adds expressions that let you freely move layers on the z axis without changing the look of the shot from the original camera position, making it easy to experiment with depth in your scene.
