Want to create a realistic flame or fire effect, but don’t want to buy stock footage or expensive plug-ins? You might be surprised to find that After Effects can manage a decent fire effect with just the built-in toolkit.
Just add this free After Effects preset to a solid layer and see it burn!
Compatible with After Effects CS5 upwards, no plug-ins required.
For instructions on how to add animation presets to your installed copy of After Effects (CS5, CS5.5, CS6 and CC) please read this post.
