It's really a secret. It even says so on the menu.
greyias: Adobe has secret menus.
greyias: I... I need to show you graphically.
(One e-mail later)
mumumugen: ...how did you access this? o_o (I'd never used After Effects though)
greyias: You know when you're trying to access the General preferences?
greyias: IE: Edit -> Preferences
greyias: I held Shift.
greyias: I held FUCKING SHIFT and that's all it took for it to let me render my ABSURDLY simple 3D animation. I don't know whether to be ecstatic, or furious.
greyias: I mean seriously.
greyias: Who codes a SECRET menu?
greyias: Dude, I have text, flying off the screen. In 3D space. That's it.
greyias: It's not like I'm re-creating an epic battle in Star Wars
mumumugen: Doesn't seem to be anything like that on Photoshawp
greyias: I know :(
mumumugen: Isn't this like you know
mumumugen: when you're a kid and a friend of yours introduces you to a secret in a videogame
mumumugen: and you're like
mumumugen: SERIOUSLY IS THERE A WARP ZONE THERE?
greyias: It's that innocuous giant green pipe
greyias: And all you need to do is hold the down/shift button, and you can go fight Bowser at the end
[Context on the issue I was having]
I'm still unsure if I should be shaking my fist at them for leaving such an annoying bug in their program and choosing to code a secret menu instead (and not referencing it... ANYWHERE, seriously, not in the Help Files), or searching every single other Adobe product for a similar secret menu.
