This is the first in many tutorials where I try to hit some of the more important (and less covered) topics in Video CoPilots Element 3D.
In case you dont know what Element 3D is- its basically a 3d polygon replicator that has a ton of functions dressed as a humble After Effects plugin. Theres a ton of features built into it like Ambient occlusion, Noise, and new Deformations, and Im going to do my best to cover them as best as possible.
I have another tutorial that already covers the basics of how to use element for those who are brand new to it, and you can find that here.
Today we are going to start with the basic Point replicator.
The point replicator does exactly what it sounds like. It replicates anything in a single group at a specific XYZ coordinate point.
In this Tutorial we will explore:
Setting the point replicator
Setting up the scene
Understanding how Element 3d uses folders
Changing number of particles in the point replicator
Understanding XYZ space in the point replicator
Understanding Multiple objects within groups
Cycling different geometry in a group
Adjusting X Y Z scatters
Modify group positions
Moving in 3D space within a particle replicator
That’s pretty much it for the point replicator in Element3D.
