Version: 1.0 Sign up to be notified by email when a new version of this script is posted 3D Extruder is a script that makes light work of creating high-quality 3D extrusions in After Effects, using the time-honored method of stacking 2.5D layers (all automatically of course). The benefit of this is your 3D extrusions are part of your real After Effects 3D space so they interact properly with other 3D layers. --- aescripts.com ---

The script has several aims: Familiarity:
To build 3D extrudes using a standard After Effects precomposition structure, making it familiar and intuitive for After Effects users to go into and customize.
Traditionally, extrudes created by stacking 2.5D layers have been rather cumbersome to work with. 3D Extruder deals with this by having a built in “edit mode” which temporarily simplifies the structure at the flick of a switch. Used in combination with draft 3D it means that you can often scrub back and forth on the time-line in real-time or near real-time, leaving you free to worry about getting that animation just perfect.
3D Extruder makes a highly convincing 3D extrude, emulating specular highlights, shading and reflection that respond dynamically to a controller light and reflector. Move or rotate your extrude and the shading and reflection change appropriately. Similarly, moving the light or reflector will cause the shading, specular highlights and reflection to respond too.
3D Extruder has 10 presets that create great results at the click of a switch. With a bit of extra customization, you can create results that it’s hard to believe came out of After Effects... --- aescripts.com ---
