Cool tutorial.
Although the 3rd part didn't work for me for various reasons.
1: When I added the 3d transformations they just went in all directions and didn't look at all like a 3d version.
2: I couldn't rename each duplicate of comp1. Dunno if this was my lack of knowledge but anyway.
3: When adding a new layer I didn't know what kind of layer to add (As mentioned earlier).

So part 3 I failed at but I got some cool knowledge from the rest thanks.

There is a section close to the completion of this tutorial where you say "now add a new layer, make it 3D layer. give it the following values: position values: 170,203,0."

What kind of layer are you telling us to create? Is it a shape layer, solid, null object, adjustment? I'm new to this program and I'm stoked to learn it. These tutorials are good I just need to know what type of layer? I can't get it to work properly for some reason using a shape layer. Does the order of the layers matter too? Should this additional layer be below the front, back, right and left?

Thanks!

Very useful tutorial!!! Thank you very much for sharing your knowleddge :) I'm pretty new using After Effects but I'm learning plenty of things these days :)
I have a little question. I have used other scripting values instead the ones you mentioned in the tutorial (obviously, those values can vary depending on how I have created the 3 solids about its dimentions). As I can see, *number means like a coarse amount of -number and +number. My question is about the minus numbers and the plus numbers. They seems to adjust the range of the effect. - means the lower value and + the top value, am I right?
