Eran Stern creates a 3D Captain America Shield entirely in After Effects using both ShapeShifter for After Effects and FreeForm Pro. Eran notes that this is a good comparison of the speed, quality and workflow differences between the two 3D plugins for After Effects by Mettle.
Check out the tutorial for creating a 3D Captain America Shield entirely in After Effects here.
In this video tutorial I’ll show you how to create the shield inspired by the movie Captain America without leaving After Effects. The project is based on plug-ins created by Mettle and includes two compositions, one which uses FreeForm Pro and ShapeShifter AE and the other based on the bundled FreeForm plug-in which is included with After Effects from version CS5.
