Optical Flares Back Stage Lighting Effect

In this you have to create a wall of lights. You have to use Video copilot’s Optical Flare plugin. Create some lights in a proper shape and then make a solid and apply optical flare to it. Then change POSITIONING MODE to lights. Duplicate the flare layer and then go to options of optical flares effect and choose IRIS from basic presets. In IRIS just change the SHAPE TYPE to TEXTURE and choose TEXTURE IMAGE as LIGHT DOME. Then in end add some animation by giving some value to FLICKER. And don’t forget to put your text layer in FOREGROUND layer. For creating moving paper particles you should use PARTICLE SYSTEM in after effects. Give some cool camera move.
