How to Burn Down a House Using Stock Footage in After Effects

How to Burn Down a House Using Stock Footage in After Effects

Rodolphe teaches you how to create a realistic composition using ActionVFX Structure Fires

Visual effects can make or break a film. It doesn't matter if your story is great, your budget is huge, and you've got Tom Hanks rocking the lead role. If your effects aren't good, nobody will believe your story.

In this tutorial, Rodolphe walks us through the process he used to realistically burn down this house, using our Structure Fire Collection. As you'll see in the video below, you can use these same techniques to up the realism in your own shots. Enjoy the knowledge!
