Video Tutorial: Paint Drips in After Effects

Danny Greer

Want to create a graffiti or wet paint look in your video projects? Using the Trapcode Particular plugin you can create this effect in After Effects.  The following video tutorial shows you how.

Red Giant Trapcode Particular

Red Giant Software’s Trapcode Particular is a powerful visual effects toolset that can be used to create complex lighting and particle motion design, but it can also be utilized for more simple visual effects.  The following video tutorial by Red Giant’s own Harry Frank shows how he uses particular to mimic the look of wet paint in After Effects, a cool effect for giving your video projects a graffiti look.

Follow the video tutorial through the steps of creating your own custom graffiti effect in AE or head over to the Red Giant site to grab the free project file.

Creating realisitic paint drips in After Effects takes a bit of skill and more steps than you might imagine, so this isn’t a tutorial for the AE beginner.  Some AE experience is suggested.

Note: Trapcode Particular is a third party After Effects plugin and can be purchased on the Red Giant site.
