Matt Dallos has been involved with motion graphics since the day his high school computer graphics teacher showed him the possibilities of what computers can do. As Matt says, "The very first day of class my teacher showed us a tape of examples of what can be done on a computer, I was amazed at the possibilities and it soon became my goal to learn how to do those amazing things." He really got involved after a skiing accident left him with a torn ACL, MCL, and meniscus. "I had a lot of downtime where I really couldn't do much at all so I purchased some books and started reading".He is currently pursuing a degree in Television/Radio from the Roy H. Park School of Communications at Ithaca College. Matt keeps busy by working for Park Productions in Ithaca, New York and by doing freelance web/flash design. In his free time Matt enjoys downhill skiing, mountain biking, hiking, swimming, lifting weights and running. Matt put it best when he said; "I'm either on the computer hard at work, or outside somewhere hurting myself."

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.
