I've been trying to following the instructions on creating particles along a path using a 3D light.
I'm trying to create a pixie dust trail (Think disney DVD intro) that follows a circle and some other paths. The end result will be a reveal of some text.
I'm having a tough time getting the light path to be a bezier. Everytime I click a new point, I see handles, but they aren't doing anything. The end result is just a big square (where there should be a circle). What am I missing on this?
Check your AE manual for how to adjust keyframes. In your case you created simple linear keyframes. To create Bezier keys, you need to click and drag. To change the keyframe type, select them and press Ctrl when you click on them or Ctrl+Alt+K to bring up the keyframe type panel.
