Everything you need to make magic motion sparkles

Don’t we all have an inner child that sees magic in glittery sparkles streaming across a screen? Just for a second, don’t you feel the love? Everybody loves sparklers!

I’ve put together a quick learning video with everything you need to make sparkle paths using Adobe After Effects.

I give you the easiest, most straightforward way to make your motion sparkles without any unnecessary filler. You can add your own magic later!

Here’s mine. Simple but so pretty.

And here’s how.

You could draw the path in, say, Illustrator, and Copy>Paste into Aep onto a new Shape Layer and then copy the path from the Mask Path option from there to the Null Layer.

Hope you found it easy to follow and will go on to make many a beautiful sparkle stream with your magic!
