Tutorial 166: Free 3D Terrain

Joe Clay | Mar 8, 2019

In this week's After Effects tutorial, we explore an old effect—Wave World. The last time I used this effect, I was watching Total Training DVDs from Brian Maffitt in like 2005.

Today, I was trying to do something else, and I accidentally clicked on Wave World. I had forgotten it has a 3D preview of the waves. So, with some quick tweaking, I was able to get rid of the UI elements and get a 3D terrain.

Hopefully you can take it and build on it.
