Create a Doctor Who (2005) Time Vortex in After Effects

A Trapcode Particular and CC Particle World tutorial.

Fantastic! After all these years, it turns out there’s a simple way to recreate a David Tennant era… I mean… Christopher Eccelston era time vortex. In this dual After Effects tutorial, I show how to take the particle tunnel / wormhole I previously showed how to make, and adapt it to match the 2005 – 2009 Doctor Who title sequence.

And not only that, but then I also demonstrate how to reverse the direction of travel, swinging the camera around and changing the colour from blue to red. Just like the blue-shift to red-shift of the titles. Oh yes! I do have to use a couple of expressions, but I promise they are easy to follow and won’t make AE go all wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey.
