3D Warps for After Effects

3D Warps for After Effects


Twist. Bend. Bulge.

The 3D Warps package contains two powerful plug-ins: 3D Layer Warp and 3D Grid Warp.

3D Layer Warp lets you take existing AE layers and deform them in many ways. Twist them along any axis. Bend a layer around itself. Add arbitrary dimension with a displacement map.

3D Grid Warp provides the same warping controls as 3D Layer Warp in addition to a crisp grid generator. Select your grid style and set your line colors. Animate the lines and the warping parameters to create fantastic backgrounds for your motion graphics.

Advanced material, lighting, and camera controls allow you to create dramatic scenes with ease.

your cart to get started.

• Add a true third dimension to your flat artwork
• Generate colorful grids in multiple styles
• Do page curls, water ripples, and wrapping spheres
• Combine warps to build infinite contours
• Animate the settings to create moving shapes
• Integrate your warped shapes into your After Effects scene


3D Layer Warp and 3D Grid Warp provide a variety of Warp Styles to choose from. You may combine the styles in order to achieve complex shapes.



You can use the Line Controls and the Color Controls in 3D Grid Warp to create custom grids.



You can combine up to three warps to create unique shapes. You can also animate the parameters to put your warps in motion.



You may apply any other layer as the source for the color image used in the warp. Images with alpha channels can be used to cut out pieces of the source image. Color maps can be combined with the grids in 3D Grid Warp.



Your layers can have transparency, specular highlights, and reflection maps. You can either use the lights in the Warp plug-in or you can use After Effects lights for additional effects.
