Where can I learn about coding for Particular?

For instance it comes with a preset called "crazy thing" that has an emmiter with a position using this expression --- effect("Particular")(8).wiggle(80,200)--- where can i learn more about this type of code... for use with not only particular ... but other effects as well.

- Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

This is a simple generic expression in AE. Look in the main forum for more infos and links or use the search function. Also give the manual a shot - it's not great, but expalins a few basic things.

I reccommend you buy the book Creating Motion Graphics Volume 2 by Chris and Trish Meyer. This book has a couple of great chapters that explain expressions (AE's version of Javascript) and how AE uses expressions to control layers and effects. The expression you quoted that particular uses basically means move the position of the emitter x amount of times per second by x amount of pixels. The Meyers explain it all very succinctly. All of their books are well worth the price.
