Does anyone have any tips into how to animate a 3d traveling map

I was asked to create a traveling map for a race as homework and im feeling kinda stuck as to where to start i started with a displacement map as my base for the terrain

Welcome to b.a.
Please learn to pay more attention in class.

I shall assume you mean you have used the displacement modifier.
If you add an empty to the scene then in the maps displacement settings > Coordinates > change local to object. Pick the Empty as the object. Move the empty.

I am sure you remember how to keyframe the empty to animate it.
Scale the empty in either x or y to make sand dunes.

Welcome to BA :slight_smile: can you provide an example of what you mean? Can you also provide the parameters of your homework assignment; i.e. how much external help you’re allowed to receive?
