Creating Fire in After Effects

...is a roundup of tutorials and free projects now at PVC.

One item mentioned is by Video Copilot, who posted an effective campfire or torch-like flame in a free fire project for After Effects:

"Here is a little test I made using CC Particle World and some vector blur to make Fire. It’s not perfect but an interesting study. One of the key things I did was used a wiggle expression on the particle birthrate to give a variable emission pattern like something was burning inconsistently. It’s a little slow to render but it is very high resolution."
