I am fairly new to AE and I was wondering what steps or if anyone knows of any tutorials on how to turn this microwave imagery movie of the developement of a hurricane into a 3 dimensional movie like what you would see on the Discovery Channel as an explainer graphic. I believe it needs to be turned into a grayscale map and use the grayscale map as a bump map...and all this animated. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
Thanks. I have a working knowledge of C4D I just thought AE would be the best choice for this project since I assume it would be the easiest to create the grayscale map and the displacement map and then use those to create the vertical relief and just flip the movie into the vertical and throw a geographical map under the image and bam you're done.
How would you recommend attacking this in a 3D program? Right now my main sticking point is figuring out how to create the grayscale map of it. I thought AE would be the avenue for that. If there is a better way I'm certainly open to it.
