AEplus 006 – Paper pile multi-layer 3D composition in After Effects with silhouette (Tutorial)

August 27, 2019


The subscriber asked me to explain how to do this. We will experiment with this video. There should be transparency. This layer – the basis for the expression. This entire formula will move copies of the layer away from the camera. Change only Z axis. Now copies will move on distance of slider value. I used this free script. Now, each layer is shifted by 1 frame ladder. Make more copies! Making light and shadow.
For volume and beauty. Shadows need to be ON also at layers. Here it is possible to accelerate a render.
(a little) I decided to make the layer with a gradient for the background. Few shadows 🙂 That’s all!

  2. I was worried I wouldn't be able to find a tutorial on this effect. I knew what I wanted to do just didn't know how it was possible.
    This included not only separating the layers, but also the addition of delay, and I see SO much potential in this effect. Will be making use of it for many years to come.
