Extruding 3D Text in Adobe After Effects (2 part tutorial)

As well as tell stories, I also am a trainer for Adobe Première Pro and After Effects and having recently run a course where they needed to know more about 3D in AE I decided to do an in-depth tutorial on how to create 3D text, change the renderer in AE, add a bevel, extrude the text, add lights, add shadows, add environment maps etc etc. The tutorial has ended up being quite long, so I split it into 2 parts. The downside is … it’s quite long … the up-side is that there is a great deal of valuable information in this tutorial series and well worth the time if you can find it.
