Dean Velez demonstrates how to create a light streaking effect off of video footage in After Effects, mimicking the smoke trails that you would see in a wind tunnel.

in this tutorial we’re going to create a cosmic wind tunnel effect on our bike rider footage

Dean runs the gamut with After Effects native plugins using Echo, Vector Blur, CC Toner and Wiggler to put together the wind tunnel effect and also shows how to doctor the footage to achieve more motion and a more natural lighting feel – some good stuff here.
