  • Mike Ritchie said: Serious question... Do people that have used this plugin feel that it is a solid replacement for Element 3D?  I'm really considering getting this plugin and want to support an actual Element successor.  Is this the one?  Wh…
  • Martin Speidel said: I'm considering buying, but when testing I wasn't able to remove this fake ambient occlusion when two objects intersect each other. Is there a way to get a completely flat look without the "shading"? Thank you so much! …
  • João Bicalho said: I just bought helium. I support your initiative by bringing a new 3D plugin to AE, it's about time! Thank you. My question is: I use 2 setups, one with Windows another with Macbook M1. Can I use Helium on both with the same…

  • João Bicalho said: I'm considering buying, but I wonder if I can edit parts of the OBJ model that I import into Helium. For example, rotate the wheels of the car or open and close the doors. In E3D this is possible, I just need to leave each…
  • Zach Meissner said: With Element 3D, you can have an iphone model with a custom texture layer for the screen. Is it possible to have this in Helium as well? Are there iphone models somewhere that already has this set up and ready to use? …

  • Keenan Mitchell said: Honestly, anyone considering buying this should just learn a real 3d program and save yourself the headache of pretending you can reasonably make 3d graphics in After Effects. Especially if somebody is trying to charge y…
