What is it?

Wisp allows you to create 3D trails of particles in Adobe 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.

Animations that are normally difficult and time-consuming are now simple to create in After Effects – 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.
