A spaceship enters a wormhole in space

Scientifically Accurate Wormhole in After Effects

In this tutorial, we’re going to travel from one point in space to another.

Is this true, scientific representation of travelling through a wormhole? Probably not, but it’s based on some concepts for tranversible wormholes.

I start with two separate comps, each showing a different universe or region of space. Then using the free 3D Precompose script from Video Copilot, I link cameras in each comp. And then use a 3D mask to cut a hole out in one comp to see the other. Then I dress up the look of the wormhole using an adjustment layer with a reuse of the same mask but altered using Essential Graphics.

I use the Bulge effect for distortion, but this is 2D effect, so I reuse the formula I came up with for the Black Hole tutorial to convert it into a 3D effect.
