Make solids spin like a rubix cube using fake 3d techniques. You can do this in almost all versions of Adobe After Effects. Certainly cs6 has the extrude function but we don’t need that here and I’m not sure we even want it just right now. So if you have cs3, cs4 or cs5 you should be fine. Any older and just replace the “shape” layers with “solid” layers. That will make sense when you’re in there.
I’ve been getting a lot of requests for this, ever since the “how to Sync Motion Typgraphy to Audio intro use this effect in it. If you want to see that go here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zcj6EFCwPkE or if you want to see what this is all about just watch the intro, that’s literally what we’ll be making. Sorry it took so long to get to this though. But it’s here now so enjoy!
Alternate titles include but are not limited to “You Spin Me Right Round”, “Meat Spin”, and “Rubix Cube Solved in Record time 2012″. Do you get in trouble for having titles that don’t match you content these days?
Thanks everyone who requested this tutorial, if you have any requests always ask them at me and I’ll try to get to them depending on time and demand.
If you have any questions post them in the comments or hit me up on twitter @ECAbrams.
Thanks again for watching and have a nice day.
