Can the 3D orbit preset animate on more than one circle. It seems I'm not able to move the position as it rotates in a different radius.

For those struggling with this tutorial due to CC 2017's effects and expression menu changing, use the new particle world in effects, follow the position instructions here in this video but follow the expression menu language by this guy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXhy0VlPY24

It will work. :)

Great tutorial but 2017 particle world is so different that I can't find the stuff to change the opacity map :( I don't understand why adobe has to change things so drastically for updates.

Andrew,

I wish to add my voice to those who want to know how to reverse the direction of null/particles rotation. If I've missed your answer somewhere below, please let me know and I shall read it.

Thanks,

Hi,

Great tutorial! Everything works but I would like to change the direction the null/particles rotate. How do I do that? Is there something in the expression I need to change?

-Thanks

Hi,

Love the tutorial. Everything worked. but the null/particles are traveling along the circle in the opposite direction. How can I change its direction? Is there something I need to change in the expressions?
