Happy Monday.  Time to crack open the coffee and Coke and get back to the design grind.  If you have no current projects, this is a great time to pre-solve some tricky procedures.

Unless you are a design guru, Techsnoop is sure many aspects of using files in After Effects has you scratching your head with “now what”.  Importing files and transforming them into spectacular works can be different every time.  But this great tutorial from Adobe TV should help clear the fog, at least with files created in Illustrator.

Element 3D not only provides effects, it can animate your objects.  This terrific plug-in is actually a program within a program for After Effects.  It even has its own interface that comes up when activated.  Objects can be completely manipulated, duplicated and animated within the scene.

Techsnoop puts this in the top 10 must-have designer tools.

ImageWell it’s Monday and time to open the Coke or pop the coffee.  Productivity is the game plan and Video Co-Pilot brings us yet another must-have plug-in to smooth and speed up workflow in After Effects.  Below are examples of what you can do with particles and text with this awesome plug-in.

The text manipulation would be great for creating title sequences or opening pages for websites.  Enjoy.
