What is it?

The Aurora Effect allows you to create and customize realistic auroras in Adobe After Effects. Auroras, also known as "Northern Lights" or "Aurora Borealis", are colorful light displays that appear in the sky when solar wind hits the earth’s atmosphere.


With this effect, you can easily adjust the 3D perspective, colors, brightness, shape, and speed of your aurora. Create endless varieties of polar lights, perfect for compositing into footage, animations, and motion graphics.
