Can it be done completely in AE
Sure it can, but honestly, if you are new, then there is no such thing as a "quick video". Good-looking VFX require a lot of experience and even such a semmingly simple thing can involve a million steps from masking out the eyes to motion tracking to actually creating the coloration after the rupture. Start by showing us at least your raw footage so peopel can advise more concretely or elase this could turn into an endless thread.
Thank you. Apologies, by quick I meant the shot itself is quick. I'll post a link soon. Thank you.
