PARTICULAR: Birds morph / wipe into logo...
on Jul 31, 2006 at 3:37:34 pm

Good Morning, All!

Check out this demo:

http://www.prologuefilms.com/

10 seconds into this demo, a TNT logo morphs / wipes into flying birds. This looks like something that can be done using Particular & maybe shine. I am looking to produce a similar effect. Anybody have any input on this?

Thanx in advance :)

Shouldn't be too difficult using a layer or layer grid emitter... Just a simple wipe in a pre-comp, then use that as the emitter template. It's mainly a matter of finding the right timing and settings which more or less is up to your explorer spirit - there is no general recipe here.

Mylenium,

Thanx for responding :)

I got the Layer Grid suggestion...it's the actual settings / keyframes I am having trouble with. I want the birds to start concentrated in the shape of the logo and break apart & fly away (off screen & past camera) as the wipe moves across. I have been at this for quite a while...can't figure it out.

Thank you!

Well, actually you only need to keyframe the Particles/ sec setting. One short burst with a high setting will create all particles and after that you can set it back to zero. Due to the dynamic nature of particle systems you won't be able to determine an exact point in time for this, so plan some frames of headroom before your actual animation.
