AEplus 014 – How To Make Parallax Photo Effect In After Effects. Quick 2D to 3D Conversion (2.5D)

In this tutorial I show you how to quickly customize the parallax effect for 3D animations of a static picture. For this I will use few expressions and layer masks. The layers are arranged one after another and create the shape of the surface. Moving the camera creates a parallax effect. Near layers move faster than distant ones. This finished project you can quickly and easily configured for another picture.
For greater effect you can add to the scene other 3D objects. For example the balloon, the particles hovering in the air, the glare of the sun (aka Lens Flares), etc.
If you have any questions, you can ask me here on the forum or in the comments to the video on YouTube.

You can download the project and expressions and test it:
