Following a Commet Effect
on Mar 29, 2007 at 3:20:35 pm

I've set up an animation where I have a spinning ball footage I created in Zaxwerks Invigirator Pro, that passes through in 3D space through some company logos. What I would like to do is have the ball have like a ring of emitting particles that gives it a look of your following behind a commet. Can this be done in Particular?
I first set up a light behind the moving ball layer and had it follow as a child to parent. The light was thus pointing back at me. I applied Particular to another layer and had the light as the emitter, but I've got particles all over the place.
I also tried to use expressions by having a layer with particular applied so that its position sat behind the ball layer, but I couldn't get the expressions right.
Please help
