Fractal Noise

The Fractal Noise effect is one of the most versatile and widely-used effects in the VFX world. It is a procedural noise generator that creates fractal patterns. We use it for a wide range of VFX, from adding displacements to creating energy assets.

To use the Fractal Noise effect in After Effects, simply create a new solid layer, and apply the effect to the layer. From there, you can customize the settings to create a variety of patterns. You can also use the effect to add a sense of motion to your animation. This can be done by animating the evolution of the noise over time.

Usage in VFX

We also use the Fractal Noise effect to create complex and realistic simulations of natural phenomena, such as fire, smoke, energy and explosions. Of course we will combine the effect with other tools and techniques. For the most realistic look you would use particles systems and expressions. Giving us dynamic and realistic simulations that we can use in our film and video productions.

You can also use the effect to create abstract backgrounds and motion graphics. By adjusting the colour and blending modes of the effect you can create some unique assets.

  1. I love your series! Thank you for encouraging artist experimentation! Could you please make a video on how to sped up film properly.. every time I use the remapping, I seem to get a cartoonish feel to it. Is there a better way, or am I just using the remapping feature incorrectly? Thank you in advance for helping me on this issue.
