Free Project: Golden Particles

Did you know that CC Particle World allows you to use an image (or texture) as a custom particle type? Just select the “Textured QuadPolygon” and a texture roll-out becomes available that allows you to choose a layer along with some other options.

Here is a fun project file that uses a custom particle type to create the image-based glowing lights.

Element 3D V2 Official Release Date!
Element 3D V2 will be available in 2 weeks on Dec 2! Yeah! I know I’m 2 days past my November goal but we are really happy with the progress and we needed the extra time to get everything dialed in!

My After Effects World Conference Visit

3D Noise in Element 3D V2!
One of my favorite new features in Element 3D V2 is the new 3D Noise options and deformation! Here are a few experiments where I use various bends and twists along with 3D distortion to stretch a sphere around. I don’t know what these things are but I feel like eating ice cream and licorice now! […]

Please help me! The project is not working for me. My AE is CS3. I checked the post again and saw that the option in CC PW must be Textured QuadPolygon. I went back to AE and surprise! I don´t have this option. I think my version can be too old (v1.3). Can someone help me to see one more awesome Andrew´s project? Thanks a lot! cheers from Brazil!

Hey Andrew, I was curious, I recently watched the movie "The Collector" and in the special thanks catergory it said "Andrew Kramer." I was wondering did you have anything to do with the film or is it just pure coincidence?

First off, very nice effect. Am I just having a total brain lapse, or can you not color correct the PNG layer itself, but you have to color correct the particle layers? I'm a big fan of reusing code, so I like to only change things in one place. I suppose I could pre-compose the two particle layers with the PNG layer, then add an adjustment to that pre-composition.

I was just hoping I could color correct the PNG itself to quickly get the same effect.

Once again, nice job!

That's cool! Can you create custom particles like in Particular? There seems to be so much you can do with Particular that CC Particle World will not allow you to. I'd like to learn more about the power of CC P W.
