Wisp allows you to create 3D trails of particles in After Effects. With 50 wisp presets, the particles can be used to imitate trails of fire, liquid, smoke, ink, sparks, lightning, bubbles, sand, and a variety of abstract shapes. The wisps can follow any moving layer, and you can customize them with easy-to-use controls.

Tasks that were once nearly impossible in After Effects are now simple to implement - like making lightning follow a complex path, writing out text with bleeding ink, or creating a thickening 3D vine. Designed to be flexible and customizable, this tool is certain to help bring your motion graphics and title animations to the next level.

    • Compatible with Adobe After Effects, versions CS6 and all later versions (including Creative Cloud). Works on both Mac or PC. No plugins required. (CS6 users will see a "Missing" label on the customization controls. This is a result of using Pseudo Effects, and it does not affect the functionality. All controls will work as intended.)
    • This template includes comps in both HD (1920x1080) and 4K (4096x2160).
    • Disclaimer: Wisps use the "CC Particle World" effect, which is compatible with 3D camera layers. However, the wisp layers are 2D, and therefore will not interact with other 3D layers. There is a workaround, as demonstrated in the video tutorial, which allows you to make wisps circle around or pass through other 3D layers. This technique requires a little bit of extra work, and is also necessary to make a wisp cross over itself.
    • This template has been "universalized", meaning it will work in After Effects running in other languages.
    • Music and footage in the promo video is not included.
    • The Wisp template is not a plugin. Rather, it's an Adobe After Effects project file, commonly known as a "template" because the work is already done and the user needs only to insert their footage and make their own adjustments. This template is compatible with version CS6 as well as all later versions of After Effects.

      Because the Wisp template contains copyrighted intellectual property, the sharing or online posting of project files with or for anyone other than a client is prohibited. See the Terms and Conditions for more details.
