ShapeShifter AE - a next generation 3D plugin

Imagine creating a 3D title in AE, checking out a few variations of depth and bevels how long would that take you? Now imagine the client wants to check out 10-15 fonts and about as many animation options, all in 3D, with reflection mapping and, cherry on the cake, maybe, possibly a change of focus along the titles how long would that take? Tudor "Ted" Jelescu tells us that with Shapeshifter AE, all of this and more may be done "on the fly". Read on to find out what else this plugin can do.

"FreeForm Pro uses Adaptive Tessellation, true 3D displacement, Reflection Mapping, and Renders Depth Maps for use with other plug-ins, like Trapcode's Particular and Frischluft's 'Lenscare'".

3D from 2D Image Using Displacement Maps

3D from 2D Image Using Displacement Maps
  Play Video
In this video tutorial Tudor "Ted" Jelescu shows how to create 3D / 2.5D movement from a 2D image using displacement maps in Adobe After Effects. He uses similar techniques as Mathew Fuller's "Advanced 2.5D Animation in AE" tutorial to pull depth from 2D images. Tudor uses FreeForm and displacement maps to be able to have a different camera move, one that rotates around the subject.
