This Is Why You Need To Use Practical effects

Learn how to create the earth bending effect from Avatar the Last Airbender in this Adobe After Effects tutorial.

Avatar inspired travel video

Almost 2 months ago Jordy left to the Faroe Islands together with 2 creatives and a cosplayer. There they spend 7 days shooting and once back we spent 5 weeks working on this video. It was a ton of hard work but we are proud of how the video turned out.

In this video we show how to become an earthbender but in a different super easy way. Because in the original video we went a bit ham.

Red Giant Particular

All the elements you saw in Elements of the Faroes were done in After Effects. We used a powerful plugin from Red Giant called Particular. This plugin creates organic 3D particle effects which you can use to create water, fire, air and stone.

Now we cant take full credit and act like we did everything from the ground up. To be able to get that video finished in the time we had, we needed a shortcut for the visual effects. If you ever looked to recreate any elements from the Avatar you probably already have stumbled upon this person. CG Visuals, someone who dedicates a lot of time to creating the most realistic elements right inside of After Effects.

They have a ton of tutorials going very in depth on how this is done. I 100% recommend all of you to check their channel out.
