I've been searching for a while on how to create a similar effect to the one in the intro seen on this YouTube video, but I am finding it difficult to discover tutorials of considerable relevance.







@ 0 - 0.15

I'd be very grateful to anyone who could offer some insight onto this.

To me, it looks like a combination of two plugins from Red Giant Software and Trapcode: Shine and Particular.

if you want a poor man's attempt (ie, ae effects only), try playing around with turbulent displace, scatter (or cc scatterize) and cc radial fast blur.

to colorize it, try adding channel combiner (from 'alpha', to 'lightness') and the tritone effect and pick the colors.

Any suggestions on how the slashes of light were made, after the reveal?

My guess would be Trapcode 3D stroke.

I think the designer who made that animation had just bought the Trapcode Suite and just went to town. ;)

I agree with Dave. Although it might be Trapcode Form for the beginning, with Trapcode Shine making the light effect, and then Trapcode Particular for the shiny crescents at the end. Check the Trapcode website - they have a lot of tutorials that might lead you in the right direction, and I also think you can download the plugins in demo mode. Good luck.

Thanks for shedding some light on this, it has helped a lot and I appreciate it.

I will be experimenting with some of the Trapcode plugins.
