I'm very much a rookie at Particular and for some reason can't figure out the best way to do this. Essentially, I want something that looks like a laser or beam of light circling a logo. You see it done all the time on CNN. None of the presets are anything like that and when I try to build my own, I play around with all the parameters but can't seem to find the solution. I'd think this would be a fairly easy task but I'm stumped so far. Anyone? Thanks for reading,
Use a velocity of 0 on the emitter and make your particles live very long. Then all you need to take care of is the actual path of the emitter. You might also use the new Motion Path setting in Particular 1.5.
