How can I do this effect?


  •  @DanelMartinez ; If you are talking about doing this effect live action, then I would light the actor from below with a fairly bright light source right next to a floor fan point upward to get the hair and clothes movement all against a green or blue screen.  Then adding the flames would easily done in Hitfilm with keyframes, I think. 

    If you are going for the Anime 2D look, then the flames could created using something like photoshop or Gimp and make a repeating loop of images to import into Hitfilm as a sequence to create a clip.  Don't know if this answers your question or not, but I hope it helps.

  • @tddavis has some good tips, but a more specific question would lead to a more specific answer.  Asking about "this effect" and pointing to a shot that has several effects happening at once doesn't help us to help you.  :)
