How to Make Great Videos (Part 5) – Playing with Dimensions | Adobe Creative Cloud

In part five of this 6-part series, Adobe Principal Evangelist Jason Levine showcases working with everything from 2D Adobe Photoshop files (and importing/handling PSD layers in Premiere Pro) to creating 3D extruded text (natively) in After Effects, to integrating more 3D objects and elements via Cinema4D Lite (which ships with After Effects CC) as well as 2D/3D character animation with Adobe Character Animator and finally wraps up with showing the workflow for editing and publishing 360 VR content, both monoscopic and stereoscopic, including how to integrate ambisonic/spatial audio files into your VR creations.
