Burning Effect – (with Trapcode Particular)

Grab your coffee bois and girls and let’s dive in a new After Effects Tutorial.

In this tutorial I’m covering a technique I’ve been using quite a lot during my time as a motion designer. This Burning Effect method
is something I’ve been refining over the years, and this is the final form that it reached.

So here’s how it goes: after we set up a nice background with just a Ramp effect and a Fractal Noise effect applied to it, we create our text layer.
We pre-compose (ctrl+shift+c) this layer, so that if we want to change the text later, we can go ahead and do so and the effect will be the same.

We create a new white solid, and animate a Linear Wipe effect for it. This will be used as a base layer for our transition.
Next step is to apply a displacement map effect to this layer, and for displacement map we will simply use a pre-composed solid layer, that just has a fractal noise effect applied to it.
