As an iOS engineer, you might have already guessed the challenge we faced here: the need to add new animations and remove the old ones was going to require a fair amount of work from the client side.

  • Плагин Element 3D
  • Необходимая 3D модель

Обратите внимание на то, как и где вы будете снимать ваше видео. Учтите, что чем больше в вашем видео будет различных деталей, тем проще программе производить трекинг точек, к которым впоследствии будет привязываться 3D объект.

Для начала открываем Adobe After Effects. В появившемся окне нажимаем Новый проект...
