Thanks for the great tutorials Adrew. If it wasn't for Videocopilot, visual effects never would have sparked my interest and this Youtube video never would have been made!

Never mind. I found out the problem. I named my layer CCNULL. In the expression it's, CCNull. Just change your spelling to match the expression.

I'm using CC2015 and cant get the null expressions to work. Gives me an error on all 3 expressions. Anyone possibly know how to fix the issue?? Thanks.

I'm using CS6. The expressions in this tutorial (and many others) won't work. I've had other people check to make sure I'm typing them in correctly. Any advice? Thank you very much.

Can the text be replaced with a logo? When I've been trying to use it it doesn't allow the particles from the Pixel Polly to expand outside of the wire frame of the logo itself, unlike with the text where the particles extend beyond the text box itself. Any ideas?

Trying to do this tutorial with AE CC and there are differences for the software. I had to use CC Force Motion Blur, since Options menu doesn't exist anymore.

However, neither does Lens Blur and I can't find another way to adjust specular Brightness/Threshold. I tried applying Camera Lens Blur and could do a couple things from the lesson but it's not as robust as the old Lens Blur.

Any suggestions on how to achieve what Mr. Kramer is doing? I'm going to experiment with a curves layer right now.
