Question Simple 3D text w/ shadows. Is there a plugin that does this?

How exactly do you go about creating just this very simple 3D text effect with soft shadows and subtle camera movement in After Effects? Is there a plugin out there that would assist helping me do this for a 2 minute piece like this?

You can do this natively in AE! Just create a solid layer and make it 3D. Scale it up and place as a floor. Then type your text and make that 3D as well. Add a camera, and then place a spotlight to get the text object casting shadows. You may need other lights to brighten the floor object too, but it's all pretty simple. You don't always need a plug-in...
