3D map travelling effect
on Jan 31, 2010 at 3:57:09 pm


For a school assignment I had to design a fantasy map, which I did in Campaign Cartographer. The map contains some names of places. Now I would like to make a movie using this map with a kind of 3D travelling effect on the map. You can see the effect I have in mind on

My map contains some names for places. I would start from a version without these names and Id like to inisert those as the camera goes thru these spots.

As Im pretty new to AE I would appreciate some guidelines or a small tutorial on how to achieve this. Also, if there is another more suitable software for this please let me know.

Thanks for helping.

I can't see your linked video because our network blocks such things, (lame, right?) however, this previous thread may help you.

Thanks for your reply Michael ! too bad you cannot see the video...
The effect Im trying to achieve is rather the opposite to what is described in the thread. Imagine a weather map where the camera travels from one region to the other with turns and zooms, and as we arrive to a certain spot a text appears. So no cars, no dotted lines or paths.

Thanks for helping. Miguel
