so I have an animated scene where I've drawn a frozen landscape with a ship stuck in the ice in the distance with mountains in the far distance. I want the effect of moving quickly over the ice as if flying in toward the distant ship. I've done this by dividing the space into layers, and having them size up at different speeds. It looks ok but the perspective on the ship should shift as we get closer.
I tried turning the ship into a 3d layer by using the vanishing point effect in PS but that effect doesn't seem to work on the ship, maybe because of the perspective or the detail of the drawing (i noticed most tutorials use a box or nice rectangular object).
I've drawn the ship like it would look in the first and last frame and slowly dissolving between the two, but this doesn't work because we can see two ships as the dissolve progresses.
unlike other moves in AE where you have a lot of layers that separate the distance, the long flat plain of the frozen landscape makes this scene difficult.
