The amazing possibilities of the new Adobe After Effects CS6. The first video by Stu Maschwitz shows the iPhone 4S modelled and rendered all in AE with the camera movement being created with the new 3D Camera Tracker. 

The second video shows how After Effects mixed with Newton can create the realistic falling of Lego blocks. Also from Stu, he created the block in AE CS6 and he 'then created the 2D physics simulation in Newton and parented the 3D blocks to the 2D sim layers.

The glossy reflections and Fresnel effect help the realism, as does my choice to use no "specular" settings, but instead create reflections using white cards. Rendering was done in linear-light at 32bpc, and all the motion blur and depth-of-field comes from the After Effects ray tracer.'
