Learn many creative uses, including how to create a 3D nebula animation from a single flat image; animate a morphing sequence between two faces; use fractal noise on a layer as an animated displacement map; create a custom 3D displacement on an image of a face; use video footage to drive your animation and your displacement; transform your footage into an array of primitives; render your FreeForm Pro animation in 360° with the After Effects Immersive Tools.
