Particle Turbulence

For anyone using CC Particle World instead of Particular, you may know that Particular’s Turbulent Field is not available. This feature allows random 3D displacement of a particles position. A similar effect can be achieved with Particle World by adding a TURBULENT DISPLACE effect. It works best with smaller particle and it has some limitations because it is only 2D but it is a nice way to get away from “perfect” particle movement.

Hi! Thank you for your tutorial!
I have a question, when I try to play with affect size of the turbulence field, nothing happens. The line doesn't change like it happens in your video. The particles doesn't chane either.
What can be a problem?
Thank you!

Hi Andrew, i just wondering, is it possible to create a reall 3D particle world in AE? I mean is it possible to create some depth to particles. I tryed to use Particular, it's look nice, but i cant place layer into particles. It's look like all partocles infront of my image layer, or all particles behind it. For example, Can i create rain, or volume fog with one layer and place other layers containing images with alpha into it?

Thank you for your toturias!

Is it also possible to have several pictures of leaves to replace the particles so it looks like the wind is blowing the leaves in the air ?

Now...Im sure Im not only speaking for myself when I say, cant wait for the next tutorial, when is it coming out? I have to know!!! I cant sleep, cant eat, cant think, even my daily dose of Mountain Dew doesn't seem to calm me down like it usually does!

I HAVE TO KNOW! THIS IS TORTURE!.....NEW TUTORIAL PLEEEEASEEE! CANT WAIT FOR IT ANY LONGER!

Okay I was kidding! not about the tutorial but about the whole dramatic nonsense!
But seriously though! Cant wait for the tutorial!

Youre the best! Again!

Thanks Kramer!

I work for a television station in australia and being tough times and all, they can't justify purchasing particular, and we are still working on AE7 for crying out loud! The amount of times I've created the perfect effect that the producers have wanted quickly and simply with the particular demo, only to have to replicate it using particle world etc is really annoying. This is a great help in that department :)

So thankyou again!

Still...would be Very nice to see a tutorial focused on creating Believable Particles with lotsa physics\turbulence.
If i remember well...the particles u made with Twitch's promo [that are rising as if it was a storm]-looked quite nice for starters! :]
