About This Class

Particles, Explosions, Fire, and all the fun you can imagine. In this course, I will be teaching you about the built-in particle simulator effect in after effects. You can use it to create a variety of effects for smoke, fire, and explosions.

I will show you how can combine the particles to create an illustrated look and layer sets of particles to create depth and a variety of colors to make the effects more immersive. There are no 3rd party plugins required to follow along with the course. All you need is Adobe After Effects.
