Andrew Embury has created a terrific animation for American Express using FreeForm V2. The terrain distortion is done using FreeForm V2, which can easily transform a flat layer into a 3D grid with control points; perfect for terrain. Each control point on the grid can be independently controlled over time and 3D space. Entirely in After Effects. Thanks Andrew – great stuff!
FreeForm V2 is the update to digieffects FreeForm, the plug-in that was bundled with After Effects CS5. FreeForm V2 has the same great features but renders up to 10 x faster than digieffects FreeForm. FreeForm V2 works in CS5 and CS6, Mac and WIN.

What about digieffects FreeForm? That version of the plug-in was bundled with CS5, and works in CS4 and CS5. FreeForm V2 is a recompiled version that renders up to 10x faster, and works in CS5 and CS6.
