This After Effects project template takes the original Texturelabs approach to procedural fire to the next level. Simply place shapes/text/images in the Precomp, then use the custom controller to dial in all the chaotic fiery details.
Keyframe the “Intensity” to light a fire from nothing, or keyframe the “Engulfment” setting to reveal your graphic out of the fire.
With a transparent background by default, it’s easy to drop in your own background or render with an alpha channel for a keyable graphic.
Check out the “4 Second Loop” composition for an endless looping graphic.
