It's been awhile since I've posted here for creative help and I've come again for some assistance. Lately I've been trying to recreate this aura like effect from this Anime, in which I know they used AE to composite the effect. Below is my current attempt at the effect:
I'd looks fairly accurate thus far but I wish to refine it a bit more to get as close to the original look as possible. Here's some of the source footage for the original look:
For my version I used a combination of these effects;
Hopefully I can some tips to improve it. Thank you in advance!
In what order do you have the effects? Could you list them in the order they're listed in AE? Also could we get an animated render of what you have so far?
Just from where it looks right now you're pretty close to the effect. Well done! What the original effect has is more of a concentrated blobby particle effect, of perhaps half the size you have, and then a 2nd version, half-transparency, blurred effect either behind or masked with a Linear Light blending mode.
