Here’s a 7 minute tutorial to get you started incorporating 3D graphics and 3D footage using the stereo 3D pipeline in After Effects CS5.5. To learn more, look for the CS5.5 electronic update available to readers/owners of my book, After Effects Studio Techniques CS5, which will be available sometime this month (details to follow).
Artbeats, your source for royalty-free stock footage, is offering everyone a free HD clip from their new Stereoscopic 3D (S3D) library. If you’ve been wanting to try your hand at working in 3D motion, this free download is the perfect opportunity to test it out.
For those of you who are not ready for 3D, you can download the same clip in 2D for use in your everyday high def projects. You can download the free clip now thru July 5th.
