It seems an Unravel or Flame attractor to me. ;)

Take a look at Aurora Attractor plugin!

Possibly using Morph maps for the movement, glow to simulate the orange glow effect, and motion blur/DoF for the lingering effect?

I think you can get similar results if you animate your lights and crank up the motion blur on your camera.

But how would you make the discreet strands of light?

hi, you can do similar thing this way:

1. model something
2. jitter it
3. make a morph
4. jitter it again
5. subpatch
6. add an incidence angle (luminosité, color)
7. animate the morph in layout (fast move) and rotate a bit
8. render with motionblur.
9. comp

Looks like AE Flame to me...

This is a fractal flame generator for After Effects. It's super-cool and free :thumbsup:

There's also Vlam (http://www.komkomdoorn.com/files/vlam_v1_03.zip): a Flame free plugin for Eyeon's DigitalFusion/DFX

You can find some example vids and flows here: Vlam examples (http://3drecursions.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=83)
