Graham Quince's Adobe After Effects RADAR VFX Tutorial

Create a RADAR display in After Effects

In this tutorial, I help you create a radar display in entirely in Adobe After Effects with no plugins.

I take you through each element step-by-step, which will (hopefully) make the process easy to follow. We’ll create a display is easy to create which features track mattes, polar coordinates and the gradient ramp effect to mimic the look of old-school radar.
