How to create a flaming ball effect

In this tutorial, we'll show you how you can create a graphic flaming ball.

For this sample, we are going to use the soccer ball icon

First, select the flame icon from Studio > Video FX > Fire and drag it to the canvas


Place the fire where you want it to be when the animation start.


Click on the (+) add Animation button and select Position

Increase the animation clip by dragging the end to the right


Place the playhead at the endpoint of the animation clip and move the fire where you want it to be positioned during the animation. And take note also of the and Y position of the endpoint.


Since the fire has a fixed duration you can duplicate it to add more movement. Right-click on the fire clip and select Duplicate


Drag the duplicated fire clip until it snaps to the previous clip


On the duplicated fire, click the animation clip and move the playhead on the start point and enter the and Y position of the previous clip endpoint.


Now move the playhead to the endpoint, place the fire to where you want it to go, and take note of the X and Y position.


Doing the same steps above when duplicating the fire clip, you'll be able to move the fire to different locations. Just remember to note the coordinates of the last clip endpoint and use it as the start point of the new clip.


Now add the ball icon, click on Studio > Icons, and drag the Soccer icon to the canvas


You can increase the duration of the ball clip, just drag the end of the clip to the right


Resize and place the ball on the same place as the first fire start point


Click on the (+) add Animation button and select Position


Increase the animation to the same length of the fire animation


Place the playhead to the endpoint of the animation clip and move the ball to the same endpoint of the fire animation.


Now place the playhead on the same start point of the second fire animation.


Click the add (+) animation button and select Position, and increase the animation to the same length of the fire animation.


Place the playhead to the endpoint and move the ball to the same place of the fire


Do the same Position animation to the ball with the rest of the fire animation.


You now have a flaming ball effect on your videos!
