I have a dog walking down a street. What i want to achieve is have the dog filled up with "matrix falls"
Everything around him is normal, only the dog is "filled" with the matrix falls FX and he continues to walk.

You would have to create a mask around the dog, and animate it to follow its movements (blocker objects can be used to do this in pI if you don't have a compositing program) to block out everything but the dog. Then when you place the matrixfalls on the stage, it should only appear within the dog.

Thanks for the reply Elvis!
So i animate the mask with say AE, ok, that is no problem and then i copy it at place it in PI?
Can that be done?
if so how?
if i place a PI emitter on the mask, would'nt it show all over the layer instead of only the mask?

If you create it in AE, you can just invert the mask and it will show the dog, not the surrounding area.
