3D text in AE via PSD
Test clip demonstrating 3D text in After Effects CS5 via Photoshop CS5 only – no plugins.
A 1080 PSD file was created with a Text layer > 3D > Repousse text. The file was imported into AE as a Composition/Project with Editable layer styles and Photoshop Live 3D checked.
Way too difficult compared to using Motion 4s Extrude feature which can be applied to editable text with lights but if true 3D text is required in AE this is better than multiplying layers and quicker than using Shatter although it was necessary to add Median in AE to reduce the aliasing in the original text.
