drawing a stroked line in 3D

Fri Jan 11, 2008 8:59 am

Hello,

I am trying to figure out how to achieve a stroked line viewable in with a 3D camera. As seen in the Target Corp. video in the portfolio section of Exopolis. (4th row down)
http://www.exopolis.com/home/portfolio.php

I have been trying to get Trapcode's 3D Stroke to work, but there doesn't same to be a away to pin a start and end in that plugin. :(

any ideas would be great.

thanks!

Tom

Create 2 x 3D nulls for your start and end points, then apply the Beam effect to a 2D layer / adjustment layer and use expressions like this on each of the Beam's Start and End properties:
a = thisComp.layer("start null"); 
a.toComp(a.anchorPoint);
