Created in After Effects CS5 as part of my ongoing experiments with Trapcode Form. If I was doing this for a production, I'd almost certainly be using Particular 2 (and other plugins) for this as well. But I wanted to really get my teeth into Form, so I've restricted myself to just 2 third-party plugins, listed below.
Third party plugins used:
Video Copilot Optical Flares
