  1. In After Effects, create a new composition, which will be our placeholder.
  2. In “Composition Name” write the name of the composition, for example: “Phone Placeholder“.
    Specify the resolution of the song from the screenshot of the device you imported, in our case it is:
    width: 1125
    height: 2436

Also do not forget to specify the frame rate and duration of the composition.  n

  1. Drag and drop the composition you just created to the composition where you have the Element 3D. 
  2. Turn to “off” the visibility of the layer
  3. Select the layer with the Element 3D, then in Custom Layers – Custom Texture Maps, select the layer with the placeholder
  4. Go into Element 3D by clicking on “Scene Setup“, then click on the triangle next to the 3D device to display a list of materials and look for the material named Placeholder. Also, to quickly find the material, you can simply left-click with Cntrl (Cmd on Mac) on the screen of the device.  
  5. Click on “Illumination” and select “Custom Layer 1“. n
  6. Now, you can use the composition “Placeholder” which will be displayed on the screen of your 3D device.
