Maze Generation Tool for After Effects

Create random vector mazes (labyrinths) in After Effects. mazeFX is able to generate a unique solution for each maze and also create the appropriate effect controls, to take full control of the appearance of the maze. Finally, it has the ability to use masks to control the shape of each maze and also can place all of the needed parts in a single shape layer or create separate shape layers for each part of the maze.

mazeFX is a tool for Adobe After Effects, specifically designed to create random vector-based mazes (labyrinths). mazeFX is able to generate a unique solution for each maze and also create the appropriate effect controls, to take full control of the appearance of the maze. Finally, it has the ability to use masks to control the shape of each maze and also can put all of the needed parts in a single shape layer or create separate shape layers for each part of the maze.

real creations mazefx start endmazeFX is a native After Effects tool and does not require or depend on any extra plug-ins.

The latest update of mazeFX (v1.30) brings multiple position options for the Start & End points of the generated solution path.

mazeFX can now generate a null helper layer that is attached at the tip of the solution path and follows its position.  The main purpose of this new null helper is to make it easier to parent any layer to the tip of the solution path.
This option is only available in After Effects CC2018 and above.

You can easily adjust the the X and Y grid dimensions, for a more dense or scattered pattern.

 

 

Combining mazeFX with standard AE effects, produces interesting results.

Below are examples of using mazeFX along with Polar Coordinates (Effect Menu > Distort > Polar Coordinates) and CC Sphere (Effect Menu > Perspective > CC Sphere).

You can use mazeFX as a good starting point for designing simple maze game-maps.
The examples below where created by generating separate shape layers for each part of the maze.
