Google has announced its new browser-based animation tool that allows users to create animations with Google Earth data called Google Earth Studio.
How to Create Animation in Google Earth Studio to After Effects
Google Earth Studio is a browser-based animation tool for 3D and satellite images of Google Earth. Google Earth offers a huge archive of 2D and 3D Earth data, with large-scale geological features to individual city buildings. Earth Studio is the easiest way to take advantage of these images for fixed and animated content.
Con Google Earth Studio, l’utente può creare i key frames per la posizione e il campo visivo delle telecamere, la posizione del sole e altro in Google Earth. I dati della fotocamera possono quindi essere esportati per post-lavoro in After Effects, Nuke o BMD Fusion.
Ecco un esempio di video, utilizzando la vista di Google Earth Studio, modificata con After Effects e Premier.
Keyframe Animation in Google Earth Studio
Earth Studio provides a wealth of animation tools based on industry-standard practices. If you’re new to animation, don’t let that scare you! The basics are easy to learn, and incredibly powerful.
Animating from Space
Earth Studio requires us to deal with massive changes in scale. Predictably, this raises some issues in the context of animation. We counteract these issues with a feature called Logarithmic Adaptation.
3D Camera Export to After Effects or Nuke
Animating in Earth Studio is incredibly powerful, but it’s only the beginning. With the ability to export camera data and tracking markers to post-production software like as After Effects, Nuke o BMD Fusion, it’s possible to seamlessly composite 2D and 3D elements into Earth Studio imagery.
