Multiple pictures landing on the screen and arrange next to each other.

I'm wondering if anyone has an idea how to create such effect:

What exactly I'd like to do is I'd like to show bunch of drawings falling onto the surface one by one so that they're finally arranged next to each on the screen.
any ideas?

thanks

Since you don't ask for any "easy" way, the best way would be to arrange the pictures (all set as 3D layers) in their final position, at the point on the timeline where you want them settled there, then back up to the point where you want them to start coming in, and move them to wherever you want them to start. Make sure you turn on the Position keyframe at the final landing point.

As far as arranging them, if you want them in a symmetrical grid arrangement, there are some scripts which could speed that process up:

Collage script allows you to take non-uniform layers, and create interesting arrangements of them. It's also free.

You might want look into the card wipe and card dance effects. Here's an old tutorial using card wipe that might get you started to what you are trying to create: John Fischer demonstrates Building a 3D Grid/Video Screen in After Effects

Thank You for all suggestions,

Joe - I think it might be too time consuming task. I have around 60-70 drawings to arrange.
I'll try Johnny's tutorial, it looks promising.
