      In this new tutorial, I show you how to make a heat haze effect.

      Heat Haze

      To make the heat haze effect was basically a 3 step process. Firstly I
      created a layer of fractal noise that evolved over time using an
      expression. I then used this layer as a displacement map for my main
      piece of footage. This essentially created the wavering, blurry look of
      a heat haze.

      The second step was creating the watery reflections you often see in
      the forground. For this i used a range of masks, scaling and blend
      modes, along with a bezier warp.

      The final step was colour correcting to make the warm reds and oranges associated with shooting in hot conditions.

      Hope you find it useful.
