Fly in 3D Newspapers from CRUELLA (After Effects Tutorial)

Learn how to create the fly in 3D newspapers from Disney+ movie Cruella (2021) in this Adobe After Effects tutorial video.

3D Camera Tracking

The news articles and headings that fly in as seen in Disney+ Cruella are placed in a 3D scene. This is done by tracking the real camera movement and creating a virtual camera from that.

We’ve seen this 3D camera tracking technique many times before on the channel. However, it’s always a little bit different depending on the elements you place in your scene. Inspired by Cruella (2021), we added these news articles and headings into the scene.

News Article Text

There’s a specific style to news article text. It’s not just a font, but a texture. Definitely when you’re movie is about past events, you want to get that paper look in there. So in this tutorial we show you how to blend a paper texture onto your text.
