THNX SO MUCH

Mathematical shorter expressions:
(thisComp.layer("Null 1").transform.position[0]/thisComp.width)-0.5
(thisComp.layer("Null 1").transform.position[1]/thisComp.height)-0.5
(thisComp.layer("Null 1").transform.position[2]/thisComp.width)

Why we use expressions?
The problem is, that the NULL Object coordinate system ist pixel-based. The coordinate system of the particle system is relativ. So we must transform the values in pixel based.

Thank you for this! Very clear and as easy to follow as I've seen for AE tutorials.

I'm using After Effects CC 2014. So, around 10:06, there is no Options.

TUTORIAL NOTES:

x=thisComp.layer("Null 1").transform.position[0]-thisComp.width/2;
x/thisComp.width

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

z=thisComp.layer("Null 1").transform.position[2]
z/thisComp.width
