Light Particles Project

In our recent tutorial we created glowing lights for a 3D title but I wanted to recreate the effect with particles instead. The idea is having bright glowing particles that emit light onto the surface as they hit without having to hand animate the interactions.

In the end, I used the shadow technique from our particle shadows tutorial using a copy of the particles from the top view to simulate the shadow, only here I used the copy as colored light.

Andrew,

I have just have to say you truly inspire me and that you are the reason I actually bought the Adobe Production Premium CS5.5 bundle! ...It cost me a bundle too! Lol!
Now I am saving up to buy Action Essentials 2 (2K version) and then Optical flares and when it launches your new ELEMENT plug-in!
Don't know in what order I'll buy them in...I'm still thinking..so stop dilly dallying and launch this mother so I can decide! LOL!

Keep up the amazing work...

Thanks,

Hey Andrew. Im a big fan. been so for years. Just want to ask you why when I move the camera around the bouncing balls don't line up with the reflection on the floor. It aligns up to a point then it shears. It's in 3D right so I should be able to move the cam 360 degrees? Thanks

Hey guys, what a great one.
Like most of the other guys i have big problems matching up the reflection of the particals with the real ones. I already set up the main comp and the "reflection comp" where I put a camera high above the ground. In my main comp the reflection already fits perfectly with the particals when I chose "top view". BUT if i change to my aktive camera every thing gets a litte out of place, sometime not much sometime a lot. I cant figure out how to fix it. A tutorial about it, from one of u guys that already figuered it out would be awesome. Or maybe a little tip would be pleasant as well. I dont like to play with my comp around without knowing what I am doing,
I already thank you. Kon

Hi Guys,
Brilliant effects, with the light balls...I'd like to use something similar to create a short ident.
But I am going absolutely crazy trying to get the glows to be in the right place, and have now spent many hours trying to get it to work.
I have made the main comp with basic particle reflections fine.
BUT..In my luminance glow comp...
Problems start with the position of particles when I introduce the 'looking down to get the top view camera" When I pull the camera out very far and zoom in I cannot match the position of the particles in the parent comp. In fact the particles are behaving completely differently in a way that suggest they are pointing the wrong way, but I cannot for the life of me work out why..I have gone through every stage of project creation and cant see the problem.

Would it be possible to send my project over to help me work this out at all?
Yours, very confused!

Hey Andrew, really loved this take on the glow sphere tutorial you built, I actually tried the same thing but couldn't figure out how to solve for the collision event and preserve the particular reflection properly until i downloaded your project file. I was just putzing around and tried implementing an aux system so occasionally these would impact and a few more would kick off almost like burning embers or something, but I noticed that the aux system particles would fall through the floor plane even if i changed the settings to infinite plane, tried switching the floor layer with a wall layer but still had similar results, most would stay on the floor but noticeably you'd notice quite a few that would fall through. Was wondering if you know what could cause that or what a fix might be? thanks

the end result is fascinating...how did you end up doing the particle reflections? I've tried to think of a good way to do that, but the VC reflect plug-in wouldn't be able to cut it, and flipping the world around doesn't line up the particles properly. Would it be a combination of flipping the world and then flipping the x-axis of the layer itself? I just thought of that right now...maybe I should try that out.
    4 years ago
    I have been trying to figure it out also... and is kind of hard to see for me. but I found a clue in the diferences between camera in main propject from camera of glows. In glows camera is so far(eliminating perspective distortion) and from above, just like the Point of view of the floor. Just guessing.
    PLease andrew reveal the trick!
    4 years ago
    The glow layer is a precomp that has the exact same particle system in it (so the particle positions are the same), except the camera is looking straight down and is pulled VERY far back.. so you basically get an orthographic top view. Then, play with the Depth of Field options on the camera and set it with a lot of blur. Make sure you set the target distance so you see the particles more when they bounce. Thats it =]
Andy
4 years ago
Another impressive show - your glow always seems that little bit more intense than I can achieve...
One plea however; where possible would it be possible to still have CS3 compatible versions of the projects for those of us stuck with old 32bit pc's and large mortgages?

I'm working on recreating this. I can't for the life of me figure our how to create the particle reflections to fit correctly. The glows are fairly straight forward, as well as the reflection for the text. However, having issues with particle reflection. Anyone have ideas?

By the way, excellent work as usual Andrew. You never fail to amaze.
    MarcL
    4 years ago
    I was having the hardest time on that as well! I tried every different variation of flipping and distorting everything that would matter, until I found this. Parent the camera to a null object and negate the y-scale component in it's transform properties, you should get the appropriately flipped reflection/image to use as a separate composition. This might hamper how you're going to animate your camera, but you'll find a way if you really want to... :)
