New: Markus Bergelt GEOlayers 3 is Now Available
GEOlayers 3 lets you design and animate maps directly in After Effects. It’s been rebuilt from the ground up with tons of new features and faster and more powerful than ever!
GEOlayers 3 renders custom maps for you from different online data sources. It also provides direct access to extensive databases of geospatial features of the world. You can easily draw buildings to After Effects shape layers, highlight country borders, streets, lakes, rivers, places, regions, animate driving routes, and extrude buildings. Anything in the world that has geodata can be integrated as an editable asset in After Effects.
GEOlayers 3 comes with a large set of default map styles. But that’s not all. One-click lets you create a style from the colors of a composition, an image or Adobe Swatch file. You can also retrieve imagery from any common image-based tileserver. Platforms such as Mapbox can bring all its advantages of customizable basemaps directly into After Effects.
What’s new in GEOlayers 3
Version 3 is rebuilt from scratch. Since version 2, we’ve been collecting user input and improving the extension. GEOlayers 3 has been developed to fit your needs.
- New UI
- Maps can be pitched and rotated in 3D
- Automatic Labels
- Mapstyling directly in After Effects
- Faster Finalization
- Scripting API
- …and much more
In order to make all this possible, After Effects CC 2015 (13.6) or higher is required. Legacy projects created with GEOlayers version 1 or 2 are not supported by GEOlayers 3. You can still import old GEOlayers 2 server profiles, shape layer styles, and label templates.
