Let's face it. 3D isn't just animation and flying logos. It also comes in handy for VFX and telling your story. Everybody loves disaster movies, so let's make Air Force One crash! If you want to follow along these lines and do the scene, you'll need Trapcode Particular, Tiffen's DFX v3, Video Copilot's Optical Flares, and the Jet Strike and Flight Kit packs for Element. If you don't have these, don't worry. The principles here are what's important, not the knob turning. This is mostly to show the possibilities with Element. This will go very quickly (as it's principle-driven and not a book on how to use these plugins).
