In this lesson, we will create a 3D geometry using a vector logo made in Illustrator. We will start by preparing our Illustrator file for After Effects. We'll decide which pieces of our logo file we want to separate to different layers and why. We'll go over how our Illustrator document can actually be imported as an After Effects composition. Once imported into After Effects we will create 3D geometry with our shapes. We'll finish this training by creating lights and cameras and animating them to create a really cool scene. Software required: After Effects CC 12.2.1, Illustrator.
