I am trying to annotate maps similar to this:
Currently I am modeling on the surface to create my callout/text animations. But this is slow. I have been playing around with masks in compositing, and now I am wondering where I should focus my efforts?
Animating on the model is slow to render changes, but I have control, in the compostor I could mix my images and do the callouts/text in a different render. layer… My base image isnt moving much, if at all.
Whats a better direction to focus learning my skills on? I like how the call-outs look on the image above, but is there a better way?
