How to Import, Animate, and Export 3D Objects with Element 3D and a License File





What is Element 3D and Why Do You Need a License File?




If you are a fan of After Effects, you probably know that it is a powerful software for creating stunning motion graphics and visual effects. But did you know that you can also create and animate 3D objects in After Effects with Element 3D?

Element 3D is a plugin for After Effects that allows you to import, create, and work with 3D objects in a fast and easy way. You can use Element 3D to create realistic 3D models, text, logos, particles, and more. You can also apply materials, textures, lighting, shadows, reflections, and other effects to your 3D objects. And you can animate your 3D objects with keyframes, expressions, and presets.


Element 3D is developed by Video Copilot, a company that provides high-quality tools and training for motion designers. Element 3D is compatible with After Effects CS6 and above, and it works on both Windows and Mac platforms.


But before you can start using Element 3D, you need to have a license file. A license file is a small file that contains your personal information and your purchase details. It is required to activate Element 3D on your computer and to verify that you are a legitimate user of the plugin.


There are two ways to license Element 3D: automatically or manually. In this article, we will show you how to install Element 3D on your computer, how to license it automatically or manually, how to troubleshoot common license issues, how to use Element 3D to create and animate 3D objects in After Effects, and how to export your Element 3D projects for final rendering or further editing. We will also answer some frequently asked questions about Element 3D at the end of the article.


So, are you ready to dive into the world of Element 3D? Let's get started!


How to Install Element 3D on Your Computer




The first step to use Element 3D is to install it on your computer. To do that, you need to follow these steps:

  • Wait for the installation to complete. You will see a confirmation message when it is done.



  • Launch After Effects and open a new project.



  • Go to the Effects menu and look for Video Copilot. You should see Element as one of the options.

  • A dialog box will pop up asking you to enter your license information. This is where you need to choose between automatic or manual license installation.



How to License Element 3D Automatically or Manually




Automatic License Installation




The easiest way to license Element 3D is to do it automatically. This means that you don't need to request or save a license file manually. Instead, you just need to enter your Video Copilot store login information and generate a license file online. To do that, you need to follow these steps:


  • In the dialog box that pops up when you apply Element 3D for the first time, click on Generate License.



  • A web browser will open and take you to the Video Copilot website. Log in with your account if you haven't already.

You can find your order number in your email confirmation or in your account page. You can find your computer name by right-clicking on My Computer or This PC and selecting Properties.
