trouble with after effects maps and geotagging
on Mar 27, 2015 at 8:37:38 pm

Question for anyone who uses the After Effects "Locations" plugin to add location based data to After Effects maps. I just downloaded (and watched the tutorial) "Locations" plugin from this page:

Locations

In his tutorial, the "Locations" designer (Fabian) explains how to use gpsvisualizer's geocoder to obtain lat/log coordinates for a bunch of cities. The problem is that Google won't allow me to obtain more than one city's lat/long coordinates at a time. Google says I need an "API key" to obtain more than one city's coordinates.

I also need to know if Locations will work with any world map? Any help would be much appreciated.

OK no luck so far using "Locations" after downloading an equirectangular (2000 x 1000 pixel) map from wikipedi:



Basically all the cities are way way off on the world map, even though I have the correct lat/long coordinates for those cities

Try Geo Layers- much better control and it downloads for you only the map data you need from servers.
