I reached the point where you add the Starglow but here in my case the effect doesn't do anything on the "Particular" layer whatsoever. This is very strange. Why is that ?

It doesn`t work for me with the expressions in AE CC 2014 :(
The particles are generated even the slider control speed isn`t above 500.

Do i have to change the expressions for the new version? Thanks for the great tutorial!! :)

I know this tutorial is quite a bit before Element was invented, but could you link the position of the particles to the x,y and z rotation and movements of the 3D objects in element? If so, what would be the best expression to use for that?

That's what makes VC tutorials so awesome. He isn't one of those, "ok pull this leve, then push this button, blah, blah, blah." He teaches the reason behind it, what pulling those levers is actually doing, and puts you in a more of now that you've learned this, you know how to apply it to your own work kind of mentality. I learned more in a year from this guy than 10 years of watching other tuts. His format, style of teaching, and outside the box mentality is why VC is the best.

Andrew, I have particular, but it won't allow me to change the emitter size. These fields are grayed out. Any ideas?

TUTORIAL NOTES:
After you make this design, precompose and time-reverse the layer. Very interesting result.
