Element 3D version 2.2.3 build 2184 is an advanced 3D object and particle render engine for After Effects.
Element 3D version 220.127.116.114 is a high performance After Effects plug-in for creating Motion Design & Visual Effects. It now supports the latest After Effects 2022.
Element 3D 18.104.22.1684 is third party after effects plugin developed by Video Copilot. It is a 64 bit plugin that run in both Windows and Mac OS. It is used for importing/creating 3d objects and for particle rendering. It is mostly used for motion design and visual effects. Element is capable of animating and rendering, it uses its own renderer to generate a high-end realistic results, it features shaders, global illumination, texture mapping, lighting, animating and 3D compositing. Supports GPU rendering which is used to help speed up rendering times. As Element 3d is a plugin that run inside after effects and not a full 3D package, it can not be compared with other 3D computer graphics softwares because it has a limited tools. But it can do a professional work in much less time according to its simple interface and presets, that it was designed for easier workflow, user friendly and final results.
