Simple Shape Orbits – Adobe After Effects tutorial

Fake 3d orbits. What’s the difference between a sphere and a circle anyway. It renders fast, sets up in seconds, and so long as you don’t need shading, it’s good enough for a particle sprite! It’s simple shape orbits in under 5 minutes! Airhorn noise!

    Super helpful and so easy, thanks! How’d did you do the glow effect on the center pink nucelues that’s on the video thumbnail though?

      That glow is actually on a background layer, not applied to the pink circle layer.
