paths from one or more masks to render volumetric strokes
that can be rotated and moved freely
in 3D space. It has a built-in camera for AE41 and Combustion
3 users and can also use AE5's comp camera. Path reveals
are easily made using the keyframable sliders for start
Since After Effects allows pasting Adobe Illustrator paths
as masks (provided both programs are running on the same
machine), you can use your own vector art and fly around
it any way you like, the paths will not disappear when viewed
from the side.
The repeater section allows for repeating the strokes applying
a 3D transform for each instance. 3D Stroke also features
motion blur so that fast moving strokes animate smoothly.
Built-in transfer modes are provided for easy stacking of
the effect in one layer. There is also a feature to bend
the strokes in space and taper controls to make strokes that
are thinner at the ends.
