Can the text be replaced with a logo? When I've been trying to use it it doesn't allow the particles from the Pixel Polly to expand outside of the wire frame of the logo itself, unlike with the text where the particles extend beyond the text box itself. Any ideas?

Trying to do this tutorial with AE CC and there are differences for the software. I had to use CC Force Motion Blur, since Options menu doesn't exist anymore.

However, neither does Lens Blur and I can't find another way to adjust specular Brightness/Threshold. I tried applying Camera Lens Blur and could do a couple things from the lesson but it's not as robust as the old Lens Blur.

Any suggestions on how to achieve what Mr. Kramer is doing? I'm going to experiment with a curves layer right now.

I told my husband it was after effects time and he thought I'd taken the wrong medications. :/

This is a great tute! However when I download this it comes in OK and registers as 9.2 mg, but when i try to extract it says it is empty. I am wondering if it is just for Mac and not windows

How did you go into the options for the particle world preset? When I look on my effects control all it shows is Reset and About, there's no option button. Please help.

CS5 and above no longer have that option. He's using an older version. Everything you want is inside the plugin.

Hey Andrew,OR If any one know how to do this,

The layer that has the word that does the explosion. When I duplicate that layer and change the word. It changes all the word in other layer. How to I do this to change just one layer but keep all the setting the same. In The sample video you have 2 word explosion but you didn't show how to do it?

The problem is that you're duplicating the same pre-comp inside the comp.. Basically, you're just telling it to put the sam singular pre-comp into it once.. If you go into your project manager and then duplicate there (and then drag it into your comp) you should be good

In case anyone needs the ccNull info: x=thisComp.layer("ccNull").transform.position[0]-thisComp.width/2;
x/thisComp.width

y=thisComp.layer("ccNull").transform.position[1]-thisComp.height/2;
y/thisComp.width

z=thisComp.layer("ccNull").transform.position[2];
z/thisComp.width

Sorry to ask, but I can't link velocity (layer "particles", physics) to the control layer, as I can't make the needed sign for stretching and linking (looks like the spiral, I'm not sure about it's name. You called it like pickwig or so) to apper. Could you help, please. I'm Russian, and I'm trying to do sth in AE for the first time.)))
