Element 3D allows you to import 3D objects created in Cinema 4D and OBJ into Adobe After Effects. From there you can manipulate them in a powerful particle animation system. BackLight features 50 8K Environment maps that you can use to light your scene and create stunning reflections inside of Element 3D V2! The Video Copilot Motion Design Pack has 500 abstract 3D design objects and HD models in various 3D formats. Pro Shaders 2 has over 300 tiled materials that are ready to use in Element 3D and your other favorite 3D applications. They include concrete, metal, plastic, fabric, and more.
All Video Copilot model packs have been designed to work with numerous 3D programs from a single product.
Use them with CINEMA 4D, 3ds Max, Maya, Blender and of course, the powerful Element 3D plug-in.

RENDER FARM SUPPORT?
It is possible to use Element on a network render farm but we do not reccomend or support it because inconsistencies of GPU rendering. Since Element renders with impressive speed on a single GPU it is ideal to pre-render any 3D elements before pushing to the render farm.
