    If you happen to own invigerator, import a circle and extrude it. Then map your texture onto it.

    Or better yet generate the cylinder in 3D and render out the images to comp in with the rest of your project.

    I know this may not be what you want to hear, but the $99 upgrade to 6.5 is the best $99 you will ever spend in your entire life. You get a full set of CC plugs, Color FInesse (!!!!), more powerful AE. They gave well over a thousand dollars of goodies for you for a paltry price. I consider it incredibly generous on Adobe’s part and I recommend taking advantage of it.

    FE cylinder can also make it.It’s almost the same with CC cylinder,and can be installed in AE6.0.
    Buy the way,CC cylinder can also installed with AE6.0.(if you happened to have a install pack of it)

    FE and CC should be identical. CC is the Final Effects plug-in suite now put out by Cyclore.
