From Imagination to Animation: Create a Fantasy Map In Adobe After Effects

In this class, I invite you on a journey where creativity and your love for maps intertwine. 

Follow along with me in this class to create and animate your own fantasy country. I will transport you to uncharted territories of artistry and animation. Are you ready to embark on a journey where fantasy meets cartography, and the only limit is your imagination.

We’ll use Adobe After Effect’s built-in tools to establish the landmass and sea, then construct mountains, villages, and rivers with some elements, before finishing off the animation with a vintage paper texture and place names to simulate an old world map. We will then animate the coastline and make it look 3D using animators like wiggle path, merge paths, offset paths, roughen edges, and effects like blending modes.

These are the topics we’ll cover in this class:

  • Creating Shapes with Pen Tool
  • Using Merge Paths for Dynamic Look
  • Exploring offset paths animator
  • Applying roughen edges
  • Using blending modes and adjustments
  • Animating elements using keyframes and loop expressions.
  • Adding Trim Paths and 3D Follow
  • Exporting a Video

And much, much more! 

This kind of fantasy world map is ideal for sketches, films or to show off your Adobe After Effects skills in a portfolio. The shape and geography of your landscape is mostly determined by randomness, so it is interesting to see how your fictional map turns out as you progress through the process. By following the same steps, you can create a unique world every time!
