Is it possible to have Text or General Objects go up in Particles?

For example have Text disappear or and appear from Smoke.

Thanks

Here is a link to a thread that can help answer your question.

Here is a solution to your problem but not an answer: Use a blend mode or Image mask.

Type your text and make it white. Add your smoke particle to the group. Go up to Object, Image Mask. In the Image mask tab drag the particle to the Mask Source well and you have a smoke particle conforming to the shape of the text.

To see this in action check out the Star Wars Hologram tutorial I made. What you want is at around 4 minutes and 35 seconds or so. Hope this helps.

Thanks, but wouldn't that just make the smoke appear in the Text?
I want it to come from the Text. Lets say have the TExt explode into Smoke or maybe even peaces.

Yes, the smoke will fill the text. Do you have any links to samples of what you would like to create?

I couldn't find anything to post, but something similar like on VideoCopilot and the 70. Speed Particles
