Hi everyone, I am trying to create an effect similar to one below. It's from a TV show called Alphas.



Here it is in action (Link opens up on a different page)

Alphas Gary's Powers.

I am somewhat a beginner in After Effects. I do have access to both Trapcode suite and Plexus 2. Any and all help or suggestion will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Particular can generate streams like that.

The best option is to watch the Red Giant tutorials for the product, they cover all the basics, starting from here:

http://www.redgiant.com/tutorial/01-getting-started-with-trapcode-particula...

Plenty of other particular tutorials exist, such as this here's (I didn't watch it, but it looked somewhat similar to those streams):

Thanks Kalleheikki, I will go through the tutorials and see if I can get somewhere near this kind of effect.

Look up Videocopilot's free Saber plugin - it can be animated on masks or text or straight lines and it has a lot of animated presets to choose from.

This is an absolutely fantastic plugin Ted. Can't thank you enough for this. I ended up going with a completely different direction with this plugin. Really appreciate the help.
