Quick Overview

Maze algorithm is now much faster with cleaner path results. Create random vector mazes (labyrinths) in After Effects. mazeFX can also generate a unique solution with effect controls to fully control the appearance of the maze. Finally, it can use masks to control each maze's shape and place all of the needed parts in a single shape layer or create separate shape layers for each part of the maze.

mazeFX is a tool for Adobe After Effects, specifically designed to create random vector-based mazes (labyrinths). mazeFX is able to generate a unique solution for each maze and also create the appropriate effect controls, to take full control of the appearance of the maze. Finally, it has the ability to use masks to control the shape of each maze and also can put all of the needed parts in a single shape layer or create separate shape layers for each part of the maze.


mazeFX is a native After Effects tool and does not require or depend on any extra plug-ins.

You can select between multiple position options individually for the Start & End points
of the generated solution path.


mazeFX - less paths

older versions v1.40 and newer


The speed and efficiency of the maze generation algorithm is vastly improved in version 1.40.
mazeFX now produces over 60% less vertices and path shapes!
On the above example of a 30x30 (900cells) maze, the new algorithm generated
579 paths instead of the 1801 paths the old version did.


mazeFX v1.1 - bezier masks

v1.0 v1.1 and newer


Old versions of mazeFX supported only masks with linear points/vertices. If your mask(s) contained any
bezier (curved) points, it would just be ignored. From v1.1, mazeFX supports bezier masks natively!


 mazeFX v1.1 - null helper


mazeFX can now generate a null helper layer that is attached at the tip of the solution
path and follows its position.
The main purpose of this new null helper is to make it easier to parent any layer to the tip of the solution path.
This option is only available in After Effects CC2018 and above.


 

You can easily adjust the the X and Y grid dimensions,
for a more dense or scattered pattern.

Combining mazeFX with standard AE effects, produces interesting results.


Below are examples of using mazeFX along with
Polar Coordinates (Effect Menu > Distort > Polar Coordinates)
and CC Sphere (Effect Menu > Perspective > CC Sphere).

  mazeFX_cc_sphere

 

 

 You can use mazeFX as a good starting point for designing simple maze game-maps.
The examples below where created by generating separate shape layers for each part of the maze.

mazeFX creates the appropriate effect controls to allow you full control over the appearance of each maze.
