adding tracker data to emitter?
on Nov 10, 2006 at 12:35:19 pm

a total AE novice here, but needing to achieve a quite complicated effect. I have downloaded the demo of Particular to see if this is the plug in that will give me what i need....

the effect is to replicate the jet of water being sprayed from a toy, so that when i put the logo in place, the water will deflect of the logo and help sell the visual that the logo is in the shot.

I have created a track for the point on the toy (which is moving) where the water emerges, but i cannot figure out how to attach the emitter to this track point. I have read the manuals, and the help files for Particular, but i can't figure out how to connect one to the other.


thanks in advance

Either copy and paste the tracker data (select all keyframes of the tracker, reveal the emitter's X/Y property of Particular, paste) or use simple pickwhip expressions (Alt+click the stopwatch, then drag the lasso to your tracker position property).
