Daniel Brodesky shows how to make a Shockwave Effect using Trapcode Particular. Taking some techniques that are wholly inspired from Andrew Kramer's tutorial which used a Fractal Noise effect for the foundation of the shockwave, Daniel swaps out the fractal noise for a particle generator.
Here Daniel shows how you can use Particular in After Effects to create the start of the shockwave effect. Using a particle plugin like Trapcode Particular instead of fractal noise for this effect can lead to some more creative possibilities. What effects can be achieved if you used a sprite for the particle shape?
Particular will also offer the opportunity to layer the effect with more details, designing the effect by adding more particles to the original.
Hello, I'm back again with this requested tutorial. I'm showing the tips and tricks to achieve the digital storm effect, and I'm giving you a little bit of my way of thinking, hoping that it helps in your projects.
As I always said, you have to have an idea and look for the best tools to reach the result that you are looking for. And sometimes the solutions are pretty simple, technically speaking, but you have to think out of the box.
