Random seed for Particle Playground?
on Sep 15, 2016 at 3:11:52 pm

Hello,
I have two layers, each with a Particle Playground effect, creating static particles. The problem is, each layer's particles are in exactly the same place. Any suggestions? I want them to be randomly positioned. I could use a Property Mapper, but hoped there's an easier way.

In the end, I used a property mapper (a new comp with fractal noise and colorama on it).

But it seems there should be an easier way than this, especially if you want to use the property mappers for something else.

(I know the obvious answer would be "Use Trapcode Particular!" but I'll need to hand off this project to someone without Particular.
