The Terrain Builder After Effects template is perfect to create paths and trajectories of any complexity on 3D Terrain. It is completely customizable and easy to use. The project is made in After Effects CS5.5+ and no third party plugins needed. You need only 2 images (Height map and Color map) to create 3D terrain and project automatically generate 3d Terrain. The project contains the base icon set which you can use absolutely free. You can use your own icons too. You have complete control on all main properties using multiple helper layers. The project contains modular structure and everything can be changed in nonlinear workflow. Easy to add any elements on map (footage, photo, video, composition). You can build a very complex 3D scene easier and faster than before.
