In this tutorial, we learn how to create basic 3D text in After Effects. First, make a new composition and then create a text layer. After this, write in your text that you want in 3D. Then, add shatter to the drawing and select rendered. From here, change the pattern to custom and shape to text 1. Then, put all the strength and gravity to 0. Then, frame the text into the position that you want it to be in by rotating it around. Change the color if you would like to, then when you are done save and enjoy your 3D text!
