I'm going through this tutorial again but trying to use Sure Target for the camera move. I've linked the Emitter positions to nulls and made the nulls the targets, however, Particular seems to completely ignore the Sure Target camera completely. Is there a way to make this work? I've made sure Particular is on Camera Settings for DOF, but still nothing.

Whilst the Draft 3D trick keeps the text in clear focus regardless of the Depth of Field, when i Render the Final Movie this is undone and the text is a blur nightmare - how does one render in Draft 3D / prevent the text from blurring?

hi there,

i got a little problem with this "dolly" technique.
i am using a particle simulation by particular.
to match the real camera movement with the particles i created a camera and a 3D-null object. firstly the particles react when tweaking the null's parameters, but since i just need it for one shot in this whole timeline i trimmed the camera and null. now, after that the particles dont seem to be connected anymore. they just dont react, when i change the dolly's paramters.
pre comping this part doesnt seem to work as well.


i am running out of ideas..can someone help please?

I think I have same or very similar problem.

I can orbit around the particles with the left mouse key and everything is ok, until I animate the camera.

When I create a keyframe for the position and point of interest of the camera, and then move forward in the timeline and try to change the perspective by dragging the mouse on the preview, nothing moves. Particles simply don't react.

It seems to be a "preview" problem, because if i render the video the movement is shown correctly in the output video file.
The problem is that it is not shown in the preview, and so it's not possible to work.

Please can someone enlight us? :(

Hey Andrew,

Are you using AEP Cs4, because the menu is different and some of the short cut you give don't work. Keep making these video, for beginners and intermediate guys too. I hope to learn alot
