Another post you might be interested in is one about creating terrain and 3D landscapes in After Effects. Terrain can be created in After Effects without a 3D program and it’s not necessarily difficult but it can be involved. Here are a couple of tutorials that explain how to do it without third-party plug-ins and then a few third-party plug-ins that will help you get the job done quickly and easily. Plus, a bonus video from Andrew Kramer of Video Copilot from the Adobe booth at NAB 2018.
