As a quick exercise, I recently created a landscape scene using Adobe After Effects & VideoCopilot’s Element 3D based on Aharon Rabinowitz’s recent “Greebles in Element 3D” tutorial (https://youtu.be/Nm-EUpS724Q). I built this scene in about an hour using a segmented plane primitive as a particle replicator shape and mountain models from a pack by Amit Das as the particles. There is a brief breakdown of the scene at the end.
Tools: Adobe After Effects and Premiere
