Guys I am really shocked to see why I am not being able to set my light emitter position path as my copied Illustrator path on one of the solids I have. I am using After Effects 2015, so not sure if this version has some issues with Particular 2 plugin.
The Illustrator path is basically a calligraphic word which is comprised of about 11 path shapes. When I copy the path shapes by selecting all of them and then try to paste it as position keyframes for light, nothing happens. If I just take one of those 11 paths and pate it on light position, I see new key frames but this does not help because copying 11 paths one by one and adjusting their time stretch by manipulating roving keyframes seemed not only tedious but I was also getting some weird movement of light emitter.
I am really confused what to do. Even if I copy each path one by one to my light layer from After Effects layer which has these paths, the paths don;t show their correct placement and kinda detach themselves from actual position of illustrator paths.
Here is my test After Effects file to show you the problem.
Previously I was trying to use layer emitter as particular source and having a different problem so while browsing some old posts here, I noticed that Particular is not so good to work with layer emitters, that's why I decided to use Illustrator paths to keep a control of my light position which I want to use as my particular source point.
