How to do this FX in Illusion ???
on Oct 23, 2005 at 6:18:33 pm

hi all,

I found difficulties makinig fireworks from Delerium Digieffects to emit their sparkles and make writing , i mean i want this effect to to take the shape of the letters once they explode.

it was very easy to do that in past years using 3d sudio3 in dos enviroment by configuring "IPAS" effects .
i wounder if can see this effect acieved in AE.

is there any way to do it in illusion or Trapcode Particulrs.

Your answer is highly Appreciated

I'm not sure exactly what effect you're going for, but I think you want to use the "Area Emitter Masks" feature in particleIllusion 3. You may also need to use a couple of different emitters: one for the "sparkles" that form the text, and one (or more) for the initial explosion.

The explosion emitter(s) are simple -- no "masking" required.

To make the text sparkles, you'll need an image file of the text with an alpha channel. Then create an area emitter, open the emitter properties dialog for the stage emitter and check the "mask emitter with images" option, then click the "options" button and select the image to use as a mask.

You may need to increase the "number" property after masking the emitter.
