A few days ago I published a post entitled Volumetric Clouds? Yes We Can! featuring the screenshot of the After Effects timeline containing over 550 layers used in creating (among other things) fake volumetric fog/clouds.

The project is now complete, but since it is still not cleared for air, I have another teaser for you all – a video of the entire animation in wireframe mode.

The final composition clocks at 933 layers (excluding a whole bunch of pre-composed material).


In case you wonder – no, I did not manage to find a way to render After Effects wireframe mode. I simply programmed a simple macro on my keyboard that advances the frame by one, takes, saves the screenshot and then loops to repeat the steps again.
