How do I make particles orbit around object??
on Aug 31, 2011 at 8:52:51 pm

I'm fairly new to motion, but know how to use quite a lot. I'm trying to make particles orbit around a picture, and the particles don't disappear when they get to the back of the layer. To see what I mean, got to http://vimeo.com/28426553 You can clearly see the path in 3D, but they don't want to go behind and then in front again.

Your video is not up yet but make sure the Emitter's 3D check box is set.

Yes, I know. I have already done all of the 3D stuff, and the video is now up.

You need to make sure your emitter is set to global 3D. By default it is set to local 3D which doesn't provide true 3D interaction with other 3D layers.

Oh!!! Thank you sooo much! I just thought that that was a render setting! Local- Faster, Global-better!

Thanks so much again!

Another Problem
Thanks for the awesome help on making my particles orbit, but now I have another.

When I Gaussian blur to the emitter, the particles come back in front of the layer, what I don't want. When I take of the Gaussian, it goes back to the behind the middle object. How do I blur my emitter and keep it in the back of my layer, coming back around into the front (true 3D). Thanks
