We’ll start designing the project with 2D animations of plants, fire and water. For creating such animations, we’ll use fresh and flexible techniques. Also, you’ll learn how they can be automated with the help of expressions. As a result, you’ll be able to control the animation of all layers and parameters in a few clicks.

In this lesson, we’ll focus on the benefits and drawbacks of creating 3D in After Effects. We’ll consider when it’s better to work with the built-in 3D features, using various engines instead of another software. Then we’ll create a few simple 3D models and demonstrate to you how to quickly animate them and use them as a basis for more complex animations. In addition, we’ll analyze cases when we can take advantage of expressions to work with 3D.
