Just a little coding hack to quickly open up two versions of AE in Windows 10. I love this workflow and use it all the time when I’m working on multiple projects. Hope it helps you out!

I’m excited to share our Technology Pack for Videocopilot Element 3D with you! This product was created by Remco van der Meer and converted to Element 3D by Vic Garcia. The pack has 49 technology themed models prepared for Element. Below are all of the included models. These renders were done straight out of After Effects:
Have you ever wanted to bring something from Cinema 4D into After Effects with some compositing tags but the nulls don’t come over correctly or are acting strangely? This “hack” of baking your animation might save your bacon and a lot of frustration. Hope it helps!
This is the Pixel Lab “Low Poly Scenery Pack” for Element 3D. I’ve teamed up with Remco and we have created over 75 low poly 3D models that will hopefully save you tons of time on your projects. This product is prepared exclusively for Videocopilot Element 3D in After Effects. Here are all of the included models:
We have finally done it! The Pixel Lab “Earth and Globes Pack” is now available for After Effects Element3D! We’ve created over 40 earth, globe and solar models. We have everything from realistic and high poly to stylized and low poly and everything in between. Artistic, stylized, lego, minecraft, cloud scenes, solar systems: we have a bit of everything for everybody! These are prepared specifically for After Effects Videocopilot Element3D and will work in the latest version, V2.2. If you’re looking for the Cinema4D version, you can find that here.
Have you ever had a .eps or Adobe Illustrator file flicker when you render it? It’s super annoying and frustrating! Thankfully there is a quick fix hidden deep in the After Effects menus (like all good fixes). I hope this helps save you some frustration at some point. Cheers!
Cinema 4D Depth passes are incredibly useful for compositing in After Effects. Setting them up, however, is a bit annoying. I found a really cool free preset rig by Mike Udin that lets you visualize your depth pass directly in C4D so you can set them up quickly and accurately. Thanks for sharing, Mike!
The Alley model used in the tutorial is from our City Pack.
Just a beginners quick tip for setting up your C4D scene so you can have a more realistic composite in AE. Hope it helps some of you out!
