Updated: Aug 27, 2020

(a)DDR_011_Using After Effects to add atmosphere


Daily Activities

I wanted to create a live wallpaper to give away to people who pre-register for the game. I had created a powerful illustration for the game’s title and wanted to bring it to life. Using particles in a way that is subtle and not too intrusive is always a good way to achieve this.


Intended Results

Use particles to bring a static illustration to life.


Actual Results

As intended.


Time Spent

1-2 hours



  • After Effects can seem a bit complex, especially if you haven’t worked with similar timeline based programs. It is very powerful though and can help add action and atmosphere to your artworks.
