3D Object when rotated is flat 2D Image

How do I keyframe the turn of a 3D object?

The 3D box on the layer is ticked and the object has been created in Element 3D. Whenever I try to turn the layer it appears flat and isn't 3D.

How do I change this and start the object at one point (keyframe) and then turn it around to another side (keyframe) with it staying 3D?

Thanks!

Element 3D is a 3D effect. It should be applied on a 2D layer and manipulated through its effect parameters or through a Camera layer. This is how you can enjoy its 3Dness.

Great! Thanks for clarifying.

How would I rotate the Object around itself though?

For example. I have a bottle with the back of the label facing and I want to keyframe so that the bottle doesn't rotate around an axis but just simply rotates in the spot it is in to therefor reveal the front of the label. Like using the 'Unified Camera Tool' but I want to be able to keyframe it.

Any suggestions?

As Roei said...you transform the object via the effect's world transforms parameters which are keyable.  Of course its anchor point needs to be in the correct position.   I suppose somebody could take you step-by-step through the process of how to create and manipulate models in Element 3D but really, that is the most basic functionality of the plug-in and there are tutorials for it.

Also you can just create a camera, set it's point of interest to the bottle and use the unified camera tool, which you mentioned you're familiar with, and animate it around the object

As for my suggestion?   You will not get far trying to use the forums as a substitute for learning software.  The video co-pilot website has very high quality tutorials.

I guess the hard part for a lot of people is picking a tutorial that's not too advanced.
