Using Fractal Noise to Create FireUsing Fractal Noise to Create Fire

In this tutorial, Matt Dallos demonstrates using Fractal Noise in After Effects 5.5 to create fire. More specifically, he demonstrates the Bonanza look of a fire burning through a piece of paper. Yes, this effect could be generated in a 3d program or plugins, but why bother when you can do it with filter set in AE. You can also use these same basic steps to create other plasma and liquid type effects.
