So, the newer version of Particular doesn't have "Rotation" by itself. It's broken up between x,y,z. So the expression "random(0,360)" doesn't work the same way now. Any thoughts on how to get the same effect? Everything else seemed to work. Thanks!

I had the same issue and found that I had the wrong layer selected when applying the Matte.

Concise, complete, useful, interesting and hilarious. THANK YOU for taking the time to put together so much free quality content. I found you through the recommendation of Corey Barker over at KelbyOne (at the end of his Intro to Ae class). I was hoping the team would release more content for Ae but with your site, it looks like I won't need to bother bugging them for it ^_^ It seems my skills in Photoshop will transition very smoothly to Ae and man am I ever glad for that. I'm sure it will be some time before I'm familiar with all the fiddly bits of Ae, but I am VERY excited to blow some minds at work with custom motion graphics ^_^ Thanks again!

TUTORIAL NOTES:
UPDATE: The Texture element is indeed from the Evolution collection and not the Riot Gear one as stated. The project file contains the Smoke Element, the project file has been excluded so that you can experiment.
