Motion Array Shows How to Make a Custom Unfolding Map Animation in After Effects.

Owen Chikazawa for Motion Array shares a simple but effective technique for working with After Effects 3D layers to create an unfolding map animation. “Whether you’re wanting to advertise a location or just create something flashy and impressive, this unfolding map animation is sure to wow your viewers” Owen mentions about the tutorial.

There are a lot of essential workflow topics covered for new-ish AE users that include breaking up an image into the sections into various parts, parenting and working with 3D layers in After Effects. The end result consists of 3D layers driving the way the map is unfolding, and then after it zooms in, there’s some depth of field too.
