Create an Aurora (Northern Lights) in After Effects (Download Project)
How to Create an Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) in After Effects with Particular or built-in plugins.
I wanted to make realistic auroras in After Effects for one of my projects. In this video (coming soon) I focus on how to create an aurora with After Effects alone, and I also show how to make an aurora with Particular. I think the aurora effect looks great. It is fully animated, or can be exported as a still image. You can download the project file for use with your own work, or use it to learn how the Aurora (Northern Lights) was made in After Effects.
