This seems to be fairly close and quick:

1. Create a 150x150 solid. Apply Render>Ramp. Ramp type circular. Start Ramp 75,75 - white. End Ramp 75,150 - black. Now apply Channel>Shift Channel, take alpha from Luminance.

2. Duplicate this solid. Move down 3 secs in timeline and animate one solid left and one solid right.

3. Create an adjustment layer.
Apply Adjust>Threshold. Default of 127 is fine.
Apply Blur>Fast Blur 22.
Apply Image Control>Colorama. I set the output cycle to Solarize Red.
Apply Channel>Shift Channels. Take Alpha from Red.

4. Press Ram preview.

Now just make a new one where the first ones land, and move them off a little, repeat as necessary.

You may want to a Turbulent Displace to add a little more of the goopiness to the whole thing.

Looks faily decent. I hope this helps.


ps. Or you could jsut buy TinderBox 2 which has a Blobs plug in it. It does pretty much just what we just made above.
