Hi! My problems:
When I make the CCParticleWorld, it appears too small and I don't know how to make it bigger.
I also don't have the "Scrubbers" nor the "Options".
I cannot turn off the grid.
Help please! I work on After Effects CS5.

For all of the people using CS5 and interested in this tutorial, you will see that the options of CC Particle World are not available (or at least for me). Now, since Andrew is mainly using the "blur" in the options, all you will need to do is apply a motion blur to the particle layer and there is your solution (or again, at least for me[x ).

Hi there,
I'm using AE CS4, and I cannot get the text to do that neon glow. I keep selecting RGB colours the way you said, but the brightness just keeps changing. It wont stay at 100%.
Any suggestions?
Thanks :)

Great guide, thanks. I used CS5 and had to deviate a little. Motion blur is set on the timeline, and I needed to adjust overall motion blur settings to make my lens convex look like stripes as in your video.
