3D scene made entirely in After Effects using Element 3D, Particular and SkyBox to unify the 3D space and reflections by Claude Autret

Tools used

  • Element 3D
  • Tracode Particular
  • SkyBox

Author Notes

Test render combining Elements 3D v2.2, Trapcode Particular, and Mettle Skybox to blend everything together.
Skybox brings really nice reflection & refraction to Element 3D, and enables it to reflect Trapcode particles.
Pretty awesome being able to do all that only in After Effects !
