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

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?

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

When I set key frames for the disappearing outro I need to restart whole after effects to see the particles, without that I see text only wiggling. Anyone else has a same problem ?

I can't do it. first of all, the partices are on the side, not on the word. I fixed it a bit, but not fully, when i moved the text, the particles would go crazy and get out of the frame...

Pleas stop making so many jokes. They are not funny and that's not why people are watching this. I appreciate the fact that you are making these videos but I just don't like the jokes. I'll watch something else if I want to laugh.
Alex M
10/11/2011
Yeah I definitely agree with D1g1Kd, its much better than someone who just mumbles as they go on. Most videos I fall asleep halfway through just listening but these are actually entertaining. I don't get how you could actually be annoyed by the jokes, its not as if he's making the worlds stupidest jokes or anything like that.
D1g1K1d
09/23/2011
the jokes are *exactly* why i, along with most others, watch these tutorials. i have stopped tutorials on other websites halfway thru- sacrificing what i'm sure was valuable information- due to the fact they were so dry and tedious. i just can't stand listening to someone who sounds like ben stein on an eye drop commercial telling me to make 47 new solids in a 6 minute video. the jokes give these tutorials life, make them fun, and the result is i learn more because i'm actually *enjoying* the experience. keep at it, andrew. ignore the nay-sayers. you rock.

p.s. the jokes are *mostly* funny ;)

Hi! Another Great tutorial! amazing!

But I have a problem...
I'm trying to aply this technique not on a text, but on a Rectangular solid... The problem is that the anchor point of the solid is at the bottom of it...and when I try to link the movement of rotation of the solid, with the rotation of the particular effect, it doesn't rotates right, becouse the anchor point of the particular effect is at middle of the emission of particular....

I hope we can resolve it! thanks for everything
Devin
02/07/2011
You can use the pan behind tool to move the anchor point to the center of the solid and that should fix your problem.
Dalton Dal Ponte
01/25/2011
I'm from brazil and I video copilot is the best site to improve our skills on AE! Thanks for all tutorials and tips!...

I just have a little problem to resolve...I'd like to do this tutorial, but not with a object being moved by it's POSITION, instead, I want a Rectangular object doing a 360 degree movement...with the anchor point at the bottom of it...

The problem is that the Trapcode particular doesn't have option to change the position of the anchor point... and when I link the Z Rotation of particular with Z rotation of the rectangular.... Thanks !

You have to buy it, it's $700 USD at www.Trapcode.com. For now, unless you have a large company, I would try to figure it out with Particle World.
