volumetric light effect in AE??

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm probably just going to render it in 3d, BUT I figured since i couldn't think of a awesome solution for the problem, i'd ask here.

 

So is there any solution to render out a realistic 'foggy' beam of light in AE? I have to animate the light of a lighthouse, and it needs some volumetric light going out from it across rocks and water. Anyways, love to here if anyone has a solution for this... im gonna get started in 3d just to not waste time :D

try a layer with fractal noise and mask it witch some decent feather. Then animate this layer. Duplicate if needed.

I don't know what level of reaslism you're after, but for some not-so-realistic scenes it works perfectly
