Warping 2d plane into a horn
on Aug 10, 2017 at 10:06:51 am

Hi. I want to make a transition between scenes in such a way that the camera travels through a horn made by warping first composition plane and, in result, shows second plane, with another scene. Do You have any ideas how to do it?

ive tried it before, but i couldnt get it to look good. you can do this using element 3d and the bend options and/or the animation engine. note that your plane must have the geometry to bend so bump up the subdivision levels...alternatively i believe you might be able to just turn your composition into a 3d one and use the native bending options

There's no way to exactly do that with the built-in tools in After Effects, but you could probably fake it with some of the distortion effects.

If you wanted to do it for real, you could use the third-party FreeForm or FreeForm Pro plugin to do it.
Or you could create it with Cinema 4D Lite that comes for free with After Effects. For a great training series on using C4D Lite, you can sign up for Cineversity and take this free course: http://www.cineversity.com/vidplaylist/cinema_4d_lite_reference
