Ciara Fabric Disappearing Effect + More


Hey guys!

I was watching singer Ciara music video “Dance Like We’re Making Love”, and in the video there’s some pretty amazing visuals. At the 1:30 mark, there’s an effect where her dress flies over here and she disappears. Also at the 3:16 mark, as well as 4:01, they have some crazy blue sand/dust effect where it looks like her body is dissolving or something. I’m sure this effect has a lot of practical elements to it as well.

I would like to know how to do this in After Effects or Premiere. Maybe a tutorial.


The effect where she disappears behind the dress is done by masking her out. The dissolving effect is not done in premiere pro/after effects, they covered her in something like flower to achieve this.


Thank you for that information @Lorenzo, I’m still really new to After Effects. Could you guys possibly do a tutorial on this maybe?
