anyone familiar with faking depth of feild in particular?
or a way to make each particle an individual layer instance? (bake particles in ae?)

Look at my website,there's apreset that contains atechnique for fake Z-depth. Not perfect, but usable

thanks!
hey let me ask you a question, what kind of computer are you running? mine is DYING using particular, (i'm throwing 200,000 particles/sec for about 5 frames)
i have a single 1.8 g5 w/4.5 gigs of ram ---

Hehe, that's massive and I'm sure even my dual proc 3 GHz workstations would not improve that much. I think such large numbers of particles are still better handled by 3D programs (without fancies such as numerous collisions, of course) In this case you would be better off building custom particles that mimic the behavior of multiple particles in Particular. From the large number of particles you use I think you are trying to do some cloud or massive swarm and if so, nobody would notice it because a singel particle in such an environment is hardly discernible.
