Andrew can you show us how you would move these types of particles on a z-axis like in the 95ers echoes? Its the same style particle just how do we get it to endlessly move through a z-axis and get the camera to follow it what kind of expression would that be?

Going fine, but Particular has this weird bug it seems, where by if I change a parameter, not all of the frames update the particles and I get little flashes of older frames, which appear whether I RAM Preview, delete and undo the layer, change anything else etc. Anyone know why this might be?

I really wish I could follow along with this....I guess it´s too complicated for a complete beginner huh?
Jollyjib
03/21/2012
Try pausing it and take breaks. Don't expect to be able to follow along in real time. Also, try listening to it first, then trying to do it. It will give you a wider understanding of what you are doing. Dont feel down if you mess up, have patience and try again. You are not going to get them all to work the first time.

I disagree Andrews tutorials are the easiest to follow especially for beginners. Most of what I know about after effects I learnt from VC. His explanation are clear and accurate, and he even tries to explain what he's doing and the many different applications of the techniques.

I'm a bit stuck - I was following through to the point where you were connecting the particle to the null object in the beginning. In CS5, there is no pickwhip for Position XY and Z to the null position.

The null object has an option to pickwhip to things. So I pickwhipped the null object to Position XY and Z but it came out as an error..

how would i go about this :/...

Thank you :)

"I got a comment from someone that said 'can you make something that doesn't have a black background' because apparently most of my tutorials have a darker background... so we'll use dark gray" haha makes me laugh every time xD Keep up the good work man!

I love you man! I love you! (no homo)
you changed my life!

Im 22, i never never! knew what i was supposed to do with life, is always had this strong urge to be creativ always fantasized about how the world around changed in a way that cant happen in real life. always busy in my head, so i started rappin, it was a good way to express my self but it didnt forfill my desire, and then i learnd about After Effects, but i didnt know how to used it.. i had a very hard time growing up, so school wasnt in it for me to learn more about Effects and all that.. then I some how came a cross you.. a studied all your videos.. i created the same as you in the first place, now I,m creating my own stuff.. ALL THANK TO YOU, im back in school, learning to make my own bussines in the special effect industry.. i cant thank you enough... you really changed my life

your a really good man
thank you.
