FloMotion shows how to work procedurally in Ae to create fire effects.

One thing often revisited by After Effects tutorial, authors are creating fire and smoke. It’s worthwhile to note that tools like Trapcode Particular now offer fluid effects too, a staple for creating things like fire and smoke. But how would one go about creating fire effects in Ae, using only Ae native tools? The answer lies in the fractal noise effect and working procedurally.

Check out this latest tutorial from Florian Fueger (FloMotion) who walks through how to build a fire effect. The tutorial uses fractal noise, matte choker, mesh warp, and some color correcting effects in ae to create fire. “How to create mattes how to generate alpha mattes how to create compositions and sub-compositions,” Fueger says. “It is dangerous, it is advanced, and it is all about realistic fire and flames in After Effects.”
