[Slammer]"Can Particular do the disintegration effect seen in Vampire films etc. ? I have a feeling it can , but have not figured it out yet.
look forward to hearing from you"
Sure. Set your Emitter Type to Layer grid and use the plate with the actor as the source (don't forget to make it a 3D layer). Assuming you have properly keyed everything in a pre-composition, it should be easy as pie.
Hi Slammer, U can do the disintegration with particular , but to my knowledge it would be faster to use Pixel Polly to do the blast... and to fade to particular if U want the 3D camera.... I know I'm a bit ol' skool.
