Not really a tutorial but I thought this was worth posting. Videocopilot has just revealed most of the new features of their AE plug-in Element 3D version 2.0 and they are awesome. The most annoying thing for me of Element 3D was the lack of shadows. Now with version 2.0 there’s not only shadows but also shaders, subsurface scattering and a lot of other stuff. And they even made it faster. It’s like a mini Cinema 4D inside of After Effects! Check it out :
