One of the most popular articles in recent months over at fxguide was our story about Gareth Edward's work on Atilla the Hun. Edwards was one of the first traditional film students to combine live-action drama with digital effects. After graduating, he went on to work at many of the UK's leading post-production facilities as a freelance visual effects artist. Eventually becoming frustrated with the "factory approach" to every project, he soon branched out on his own creating many high-end computer graphics for television clients including BBC and Discovery, all of which were completed entirely on own "from his bedroom". Some of his work went on to win various accolades, including a British Academy Award and Emmy nomination.

Requirements: After Effects, VCP's Optical Flares and Trapcode Particular l Difficulty: Intermediate l Run Time: 68:27 min
In this tutorial I’ll be showing you how to create the stylized slow motion energy explosion that I used in my Agents of Evil 2: Supercharged short film. In the tutorial I’ll be using VCP’s Optical Flares for the lens flares and Trapcode Particular to make the energy particles and smoke trails. I’ll also be using VCP’s 3D Camera Projection Tutorial to do the camera move. I use a stock smoke clip that Corridor Digital gave out for free (it’s at the end of the video). We’ll go through the process of adding the lighting on the ground, animating the flares, creating the energy particles with smoke trails and making the shock waves.
In this tutorial, we will be making a water bubble that behaves as if it’s being levitated. We won’t be using any extra plugins – just the ones built into After Effects, mainly CC Sphere. The bubble will look and behave as if it is 3D, so it is great for incorporating into dynamic live action scenes. However, because of the way CC Sphere works, we will actually be ‘faking’ the 3D look using a very simple workaround.
