Tutorial 41: Ring of Fire

Joe Clay | Oct 21, 2016

This After Effects tutorial goes over an interesting technique to generate masks for use with Video Copilot's Saber plugin using turbulent noise and turbulent displace in combination with shape layers.

If you want to make this loop, you can precompose and time remap. I would also normally suggest that you get the evolution to cycle, but you can't evolve turbulent noise in a cycle for some reason.
