I'd like to make some graphics like Hearthstone with After Effects. But I'm having trouble finding the right technique to simulate that look. After some research, I found the way that the Blizzard developers make their graphics, but they use coding. How can I achieve similar results with After Effects?
I do have the way they make the particles effects and all that stuff in mind, but their technique is way more practical. In deep research some techniques came to me, like Plasma, but they're all coding techniques. PS: I do know about the displacement mapping.
