In this tutorial we will use animated masks to create an animation of the Earth being destroyed by a devastating explosion.
We wont be covering creating the actual Earth as that’s been done in many other tutorials, we will however go through the process of creating a scorched earth material, putting together masks to transition between it and the original material and we’ll put together some cool shock wave effects too!
