Hi RighteousAJ, welcome. You could look up tutorials for creating fire in After Effects, then use the Tint Effect to change the colour and also punch up the Contrast if you want it less detailed. There are a few ways of doing it, though I suspect they may have used a particle system for the fire as well as for the white dots that you can see in the last (blue) example.

Thanks for the advice. I tried using Trapcode Form, and I got the essential look of it, but I want to know how to get the shape, and consistency of the effect.

Hi, yes that has the look. Unfortunately I don't use Form - perhaps someone else has some ideas?
