Make a Podrace in After Effects

A tutorial using Particles to create multiple rock arches.

Borrowing from the Pod-Racing scene in Star Wars: Episode 1, The Phantom Menace, this tutorial shows how to use either Trapcode Particular or CC Particle World to create a particle tunnel.

I then use 2.5D images to create a desert floor, CC Environment to create a sky dome and CC Radial Fast Blur on an adjustment layer to add blurring around the edges to mimic a Formula 1 speed tunnel.

Part of my Makin’ Wormholes series, showing how to create really cool, sci-fy particle tunnels in After Effects
