2.5D Photo Effect in After Effects

Here's how to create a 2.5D photo effect using Photoshop and After Effects.

To create a 2.5D photo effect in after effects, you’ll need to start by creating a Photoshop file and editing your photo to create a number of layers with transparency. Next, you’ll bring in those layers to After Effects, move them around in 3D space, animate your virtual camera and generate particles for added interest and creating the illusion of depth.
