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?

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.
