Nancy, from Mettle, makers of ShapeShifter AE, shows you how to create the die-cast title effect seen in the most recent trailer for Sony/Columbia Pictures' The Amazing Spider-Man, coming this summer. She uses the 3D plug-in inside After Effects.
If you want to try this on the Mac you'll have to wait it out—for now. ShapeShifter AE is only available for Windows at the moment, though a Mac version is coming soon.
