Can I build a ethereal effect in AfterEffects that I can then bring into a AR/VR environment and walk around? Or would you suggest I use something like Unity or UE4 to achieve this?

I assume the answer is build it in Unity, but looking forward to hearing your opinion.

If you want it to be interactive, AE is most definitely the wrong tool for the job. There isn't anything interactive about how it works.

You can't create interactive game scenes in AE.

Check out Mettle Skybox [link] for some VR/360 tools for Ae. You could certainly build an environment in Ae for 360, but as everyone notes, it won't be interactive VR.

Unity is a great place to do this for a more interactive experience.

Thanks for your advice, I figured I would end up using UNreal or Unity for this. Thanks for sending me the link to Mettle Skybox.
