Hi Andrew,

When I grow up, I wish to be like you.
The only problem is that I'm almost 30 :-/

Thanks a lot!

Probably a dumb question but I downloaded the project files but when I opened it to AE, all I had was a black screen. How can I fix this? It also says I need to download the effect "Particle" but where?
cool!!

Thanks for very the useful tutorial! I want to pause the line a little bit and then progress again. In order to do that, which things I need to control?

"Custom"was renamed to "Sprite"
Then in the "particle" options u'll see " texture" rollout to pick the layer source.

Btw VC’s new free VIBRANCE plugin works great on this instead of using the hue/sat effects.

I seem to be running into problems with my camera on AE CS6, when I set the stop watch for points of interest and position & move around in z space it is fine but when I move a few frames forward and repeat that action, I get this sort of glitchy image jumping back and forth as I can tell the values on the camera are not changing but it still occurs.

TIP: You can change the emitters position subframe to 10x linear. That'll give you smooth curves. Much simpler than having to keep a high framerate and skipping frames in render.

Good catch. I think the version Andrew was using at the time didn't have that feature.

Cannot seem to get my light stream to be visible when a camera is visible. My version of after effects (cs5)tells me that the camera only works with 3D layers, but when I toggle 3D on the particles layer with the camera on, the light stream also dissappears... what is the solution? Also, I feel like the stream is emmitting or flowing to slow... the solution to that is to raise the amount of particles per second... and the frames per second of the composition?
