Particles or layers VFX shot
on Sep 30, 2018 at 6:41:22 pm

I have 5 people that stand behind a woman holding a phone facing and looking into the camera.

The 5 people need to break up into small particles layers and move into the phone screen that the women is holding in front of them.

Everyone has been roto'd and they are there own layer.

I can use Trapcode Particular/ Form but the problem is moving them on a path into the phone. I need to break each person up in pieces like data.

Particular only lets you follow a path if you emit from a 'Point' and not a 'Layer which I would need.

Has anyone got any ideas? Worse case would be to mask out small boxes/layers for each person and animate them like that.

Thank you

It sounds like you have already gotten the shot in the hopes you would find the answer later.

Professionals KNOW how they will pull off the effects shot before they shoot it.

Hi, have you thought about using the Bezier Warp effect and scaling (and/or some of the other Distort effects)?

Use Scatterize to break them into particles, and keyframe a Warp effect to animate them funneling into the phone.
