Issues with creating a power blast/beam

Recommended Posts

I can't figure out how to get this 3D blast look. I tried in After effects but had no such luck making it look 3 Dimensional 
Around 42 seconds it starts a mouth blast. 

So long story short after effects will not even come close to what I need so I am resulting to doing it all from scratch in Houdini, but I am no where near professional in it.

Hey, I guess it's made with particles which are blurred in post ! 

You can make three sims : one which emits constantly for the blast shape, another one  which emit every 2-3 frame for the circles that are around the blast and another one with some noise so it adds some turbulence in the blast.

I tried an approach but I guess most of the work is done in comp :)
