Adobe After Effects: Fire in the Eyes – Heat vision eyebeam effect in After Effects

Chapter: Visual and Creative Effects

Topic: Fire, Flame or Smoke

I’ll be the first to admit I’m a comic book geek, and while I tend to favor Batman as the greatest hero, Superman comes in a close second. The WB series Smallville chronicles Clark Kent’s life before donning the red and blue as he discovers his powers and tries to cope in a small Kansas town. Many of the effects in the show are pretty keen, and one that I particularly like is the heat vision effect. In this After Effects exercise, we’ll create a fire in the eye effect that you can use for your next heat vision shot.
