nice tutorial so far, but is there another possibility to transform the particles torwards the camera ? i also use trapcode particular, but my blood cells are still flat pieces when i rotate the composition with my camera tool. (maybe i just have to change some settings in particular?) thanks ;) greetings from germany

Hi,
Just an ammendment from my previous comment. After speaking to the company i have found out that the custom particle feature has been renamed to the 'Sprite' option!

Thanks,

Hi,

After reading all the comments about not being able to make custom particles on Trapcode Particular i tryed myself and found these guidelines.

1 - Only Versions Trapcode Particular Versions 1 to 1.5 have the ability to create custom particles. (not sure about higher versions)

2 - Make sure you install the software properly otherwise some features may not work!!

These are the guidlines from the company!!

I've got a problem with the "Depth of Field".

in my "paricle" not exist "DOF Square (AE)".

plzzz.. can you help me with that
thanks


To all you guys that have this problem it´s because you have a version earlyer than the 1.5, update your version, that´s all

Para quienes tienen el problema con DOF es porque no tienen la version 1.5 de trapcode particular, actualicen su version y listo

Hi!

i just finished this tutorial and made an animation of my own. there is a problem with the particle system:as shown in the tutorial, i mapped a 3d-animation of a cell on the particle system. that worked very well. but there is one problem: the reference-animation of the particle is 200-frames long..it shows the cell spining around itself (once!).after that it has to be looped.but there is the problem: that causes a visible "flicker"-effect wich is visible on every particle after every loop. i dont understand that. i tested the animation of the source 3d-model and its 100% perfect..when its looped! so why does it flicker in the particle system ?? another problem is..that there is an ugly "overlap" effect when a particle crosses another particle in 3d-space..how do i avoid that ?

you can watch my animation here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEWbyiOyiCA

hope someone can help me!

Great tutorial.

Lennon: You need to export in a format that runs as a file numbered sequence, Andrew uses PNG, I personally prefer RLA, but you can also use TIFF and a few others. The images need to be labelled 000 - xxx and must be imported as an image sequence in AE, also ensure that you also export the alpha channel, or you wont have a background.

My particles aren't moving. They don't play the 3d animation (I use a ".iff" maya file insted of .png, but I don't see how that could be a problem)
What I'm saying is that the particles play always the same photo, and I don't know what I must press to activate them. I thought that it was loop from birth, but it isn't. Any idea?????????????

awesome tutorial!

and a little not to seb who posted a comment a little above me:

depth of field is a new effect of particular and is only available in a new version. if the particular verison you are using is too old you'll have only motion preview or full render and not all 4 options. go update.

Very nice tutorial but I've got just one problem.
In Particular, I don't have "Full render + DOF square". I just have Motion Preview or Full Render.
I do turn on the DOF in the camera's option but nothing happen.
