Create a Portal Effect Animation With Fusion

Enginpost’s Steve Mcdonald Has a 5 PArt Series Showing How to Create a Portal Effect Using Fusion

Enginpost’s Steve Mcdonald walks through building a portal effect using the free version of Blackmagic Design’s Fusion. Fusion is amazingly fast all-around, and if you were looking to move to a node-based system for visual effects and motion graphics, Fusion is it.

Steve covers using Fusion’s various noise nodes to create effects such as clouds, dust, and lightning, and how to turn those into a portal effect. The 5 part series comprises everything, including some photo-editing tips using Affinity Photo, a compelling and cheap Photoshop alternative.

You can download Blackmagic Design’s Fusion for free (with some limitations, but not much!) Find out more, and learn what’s new in Fusion 9 here.
