Since that moment everything is going wrong in my project. I do everything step by step, but light streak follows not null object exact trajectory, it appears on some parallel trajectory near it and with significant delay. How to deal with it?

Looks like a torn legacy effect. Which is awesome!

What is the best way to resize the light streaks to fit a larger composition??
Toby
10/14/2013
Hey VC,

I am having some problems with my light streak, while I have successfully created the particle and given it movement, I still cannot import it to other compositions successfully. I created the particle in a low res composition and now want to import it into an HD 1920x1080. When I do this, obviously it is a lot smaller and needs resizing.

I click the 'null' and 'particles' layer then resize to comp but then my light streak and null object are out of sync.

Im not great at explaining the problem but hopefully you can tell me how to resize the light streak and null object for a larger comp

Cheers

Pretty cool, but doesn't work when the background is light. How would you do this over a white background?

hey so i am working on adding this effect into a video but the light streak randomly breaks out of place. it should all stay constant but certain parts of the streak bend into random shapes and i have no idea how to make it stop.

The continuous stream of particles doesn't work on mine. I adjusted the settings to no effect. How do I fix this?

Can someone help me with a problem? I replaced the movie with a jpg but it seems that I can't get it to be on the background as I tried it through layer, arrangement, send to back. When I hide the jpg the lights streaks are shown but when I bring it back, it hides the light streaks.

Thank you,

Roemer

This is a great tutorial its just that if i wanted to draw the line in mid air, the streaks stay there instead of fade away at the back of the "line" like in the first tutorial.

Thanks Andrew!~

I love your tutorials and just wanted to share that if you use a 3D motion tracker like the one in Maya Live, you can then bake the keyframes of your "Locator" in 3D space, and save your Maya scene as a .ma (ascii) file that After Effect can then import. What this means is that you can then import a Locator/Null that will have 3D keyframes you can then tie to the Particular emitter!

You may already have a better solution, but it felt like the least I could do in appreciation for your generosity.

Big Ups!

I just wanted to point out that what you´re doing is great. I know it is a marketing tactic from Videocopilot, but still, giving out this high end tutorials for free is worth a stading ovation.
You have a knack for teaching, and throw a little humour here and there to make it more watchable.
I used to have Chad Perkins as my number 1 AE teacher, but now you have surpassed him. Anyway, thanks a lot, to you and your bosses here at Videocopilot.net for all this incredible knowledge you´re letting us have.

that means that Andrew used a plugin that you dont own in order to make the effect possible in this case. Particular doesnt come with AE you need to buy it

@ukgoodfella
Masking (unless the layer has an alpha channel) and layering.

Have two particle layers (one on top of the layer that you want to obscure it in 3D space and one below) and set a keyframe on the birth rate to where the bottom one stops producing when it's supposed to go in front and the other one starts producing when it goes in front. This should work with most particle systems/ plugins, but not all.

I was very impressed with your tutorials for the streaking effect. I do have a question and that is can you show us in another tutorial how we can make the streaks go behind people in 3d space, i think this would give it a better sense of Realism.....

I would be very grateful not to mention other people if you could do this for us...


many thanks.

Hi Andrew. Incredible work with those tuts.
I'm learning now, from your tuts how to work in AE, but I do have some background in 3DMax.
Question: Is it posible to make the particles to work on a path ? Isn't more easy to draw a path on X,Y,Z then asign particles to fallow path ? This is how it works in 3DMax, isn't posible here too ?
Thanks !
