Make a fake 3d cylinder in after effects using shape layers. It’s almost 3d, but is more suited for abstract depth than actual 3d geometry. This is how you can make a more illustrative or abstract 3d look.
Fake 3d orbits. What’s the difference between a sphere and a circle anyway. It renders fast, sets up in seconds, and so long as you don’t need shading, it’s good enough for a particle sprite! It’s simple shape orbits in under 5 minutes! Airhorn noise!
