Suggested for this Experiment
  • Ellipse
  • Turbulent Noise
  • Curves

After Effects Experiment 13 is all about fire. There are plenty of ways to create realistic fire in After Effects. For my experiment I used the Ellipse effect to create the rings along with Turbulent Noise, Curves and Displacement Map to create the fire. Take a look at my project then give it a go yourself by either making mine look better or starting from scratch to create your own recipe. Take at least 30 minutes and see what you can come up with, then post a or movie link in the comments.

      This is freaking nice. It looks like you have it on some sort of rocky ground. How did you pull that off?

    Thanks again for hosting these experiments. It’s nice to take a little break from ‘the grind’ and have a chance to PLAY with the tools we WORK with all day!

    P.S. I wanted to try putting together a looping gif. It turned out to be just over 3MB, but I didn’t realize you had a 200kb cap on your file uploads.

    This looks like it will be a really fun experiment. Any chance new experiments will be posted soon?

    Added some sparks from Action Essentials and a background texture.

    Pretty much followed your recipe John – thanks. (Will try posting the video link later).

      Hi Shashi, with you next experiment try saving using Save For Web in Photoshop, you may get a better looking image.

    Apparently the Eye of Sauron is making a comeback… again. Added a few particles and a blur to give some little detail.

      Here is the other more of an eye take.

      Wow… Spellbinding! Looks like space between two massively large planets.
