Feel the Energy!

I’m happy to say I spent part of my Father’s Day designing some energy inside of After Effects without using Particular and only the built-in tools.

Watch Sample Video

This effect is easily scalable for creating small energy fields for a single human arriving from the future or a very large army of robots in disguise. I should be recording a tutorial very soon, so keep an eye out for it.

If you need something to do until judgment day, be sure to check out our Great Online Store we have lots of impressive DVDs for you, that won’t malfunction and try to kill you.

For the trolls:
Please don’t beg or ask when FREE tutorials will be ready…. I may be forced to send a robot to your house with orders to punch you in the face.
