I think Matthew Lincon uses some really amazing camera angles.  Also he has really good ideas however his effects baffle me.  They are not simple shapes movement or variations on the lightning effect.  Their are some really cool ideas in their.  I have taken hours taking snapshots of some of the effect moments.  I have broken it into 2 categories to organize them.
The first one is the sequences one
It shows how he put effects together
​And then their are the effect type breakdown
1st is the cheesy smoke that is usually in their hands, however although cheesy it looks wonderful and the slight transparentness is quite amazing!  I really like the hand use of it.
2nd is flares when he used a flare as a projectile
3rd is light balls (pretty self explanatory)
4th lightning (pretty self explanatory)
5th red and white wisp thingy.  The complexity never ceases to amase me the outer ones just being cool and the movement.
6th Slightly transparent stuff (i get how to make it just don't get how he created the shapes and movement)
7th Stand alone concepts are camera angles and stuff that is pretty cool and unique (basically self notes)
8th Unknown things (absolutely no clue how these were done or how to categorize them)

Anyway the bold items are the ones i don't get if you could break them down for me (bait more in-depth then use the particle system, or use mobile emiters)
Thanks ALL (P.S if you read down to here your awesome could someone please tell me how to make a layer transparent)

    To make a layer transparent go to the transform menu and change the opacity

    That tutorial on creating ribbons with Atomic Particles is actually the second part of our intro, so you might want to watch the first one first:

    I really liked some of the vfxs and the fight choreography.  Id love to see a breakdown or walking through doing something similar.  Some of the VFX start off a little basic but then quickly build up into great vfx.  Id particularly like the fire hands he does right as he calls the meteoroid strike.

    Awww too bad you need a linked in account which i don't have and can't make... I was really hoping to get some advice on how he structures and layers his vfx!

    Fun videos, though I wish he hadn't shot both of them on bright, sunny days. Those effects don't work particularly well on bright backgrounds.
