After Effects - Ray Tracing 3D Test

I decided to try out After Effects CS6's new ray tracing 3D feature, which allows you to extrude and bend vector shapes. It's pretty basic, but is useful for simple shapes. I cannot see it being useful for more complex or large scale 3D animation however, since it slows down the program quite intensely. Still, saves time having to re-export sequences from Maya (or whatever 3D software) every time you want to change something. I used cel-like shading just because I like the simple two-tone graphic feel. And it's quicker to render. Song from Newgrounds.
