What kind of software do I need?
Adobe After Effects + Element 3D v.2.2 or higher
Most of the work will be done with the help of these tools. Element 3D allows importing models, texturing them, uploading HDR cards, animating and even modeling in After Effects a little bit.
Cinema 4D or any other 3D Software
For preparing objects and simple modeling, we will use Cinema 4D. But the principles that we are going to talk about are applicable to any other editor. That’s why you can use the one you already have, be it Blender or Maya, 3DS Max or any other.
Having applications and scripts is a plus
It’s cool if you have such applications as Adobe Illustrator, RedGiant Trapcode Form and Data Glitch. This is optional, but they might save you time.
