Hey,

Ok so I saw a pretty nice tutorial for HitFilm where a layer is curved in 3D space, features about 4min is here:







I'm trying to do a similar thing, apply a curve or warp that responds accordingly with a camera. Had a noodle with mesh & bezier and tried my luck inverting something like sphereise without much luck.

Any pointers?

Mettle's freeform plugin can help you there. A simple B&W layer can guide the plugin to displace your backplate accordingly. There is a bundled version in some releases of AE (Cs5 and 5.5). For CS6 and above you should go to Mettle's page

Cassius pointed you in the right direction, however besides the displacement I recommend using 3d distortion in the same plugin and at least FreeForm V2 if not FreeForm Pro - here are a couple of tutorials that can help:

Thanks guys, its a shame there's not something free out there though! My computer finds it distressing but perhaps i'll just use Cinema.. Heard good things about Freeform though, will have a peruse..
