This tutorial started out when my friend MZY showed me a preview of a project he was working on using Trapcode Particular.

His result is a bit different from mine, so hopefully he will make a tutorial about achieving that particular effect, regardless this idea came alive from his work, so definitely check out his portfolio :).

In short, in this tutorial i go through setting up an animation using lights. You can easily create a radial array of lights using Utility-Box

After you animate the lights, I take you through setting up the different settings in Particular to achieve the final result. Main settings you will work with are Turbulence Field and Aux System.

Finally, I go over setting up some nice Depth of Field Blur and some fast Color Correction using Curves.

What you will learn

• Create a radial array of lights to be used as Emitters

• Working with advanced Particular Settings

• Add depth of field and color correction to final render

 Software

• After Effects CS6 (and above)

• Trapcode Particular

Show me your results and tell me what you think in the comments!
