Today’s lesson will be very hot. This after effects tutorial is about fire animation.
The most easy way to make fire in after effects is turbulence displace effect. You should make a flame form first, then give some animation with turbulence displace.
I’ll show this process in my after effects tutorial. Apart from the fire you will learn how to make a torch and wall background using shape layers. This tutorial contains only the crux of such animation, you can add some particles here, some sparks, some light, flametongue.
