    Not exactly the answer you are searching for but have you thought about using blender for such animations?

    Yeah, I thought about using C4D or Blender, but I think this should also be possible with AAE.

    That pyramid contains 4 small black circles and 8 lines. Or, if you prefer, just 8 bone shapes.
    It would be possible to create multiple "shape" layers; and then keyframe each layer's 2d movement (x/y rotation and size) to give the impression of a pyramid rotating.
    Look carefully at the pyramid and watch how each line moves around the screen.

    It would also be possible (but more difficult and likely outside your current skill level) to convert the layers to 3d; then add a camera and then rotate the camera around the pyramid. In that case, additional layers are required (to provide the sides and back of each 'line' because AE is not a 3d modelling program and the simple 2d layers will disapear when viewed from the side.
