particular following tracking point?
on May 6, 2005 at 1:35:49 pm

hi there

i'm pretty new to particular and was wondering if anyone has any advice on this:

i want to make particular create a flowing smooth line that follows a tracking point. i can pickwhip an expression to my tracking point so the emitter follows this point but how do i make the line follow in a realistic 'curving' way??

thanks

What do you mean by "make the line follow in a realistic 'curving' way" ?

i guess i mean i want the line to emanate from the tracking point and for the lines to follow the line of the path which i have tracked - as if i was drawing with a light pen and that pen was leaving a light trail...

hope that makes sense.

that is damn fantastic!

thanks

if you've got time??
what parameters of particular do you alter to create the solid line that follows the track?

only recently bought the trapcode plug ins and have mostly used stroke but have to say that they are all very impressive...

thanks again

All parameters that are not greyed out will have some kind of effect on the "line". The line is just a bunch of still particles...
