Trapcode Particular Question: Falling Coins
on Oct 23, 2009 at 4:24:30 pm

Hello
I am creating a falling coin animation using Trapcode Particular. I created the looping animation of the fall coin, selected it as my custom particle but when I run a preview, even though I have the emitter behind the camera and have the life span of the particles longer than my comp, I get random coins that keep appearing and disappearing. When I preview the same clip with spheres as my particle, I get a constant stream of particles.

The animation looks more like flashing coins rather then a falling group of coins. Is there some setting I might not have checked.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

are they all rotating and flashing at the same time?

Thank you for responding.

No, the majority of them are constantly on the screen but just a few of them periodically start to appear and disappear.

Thank you for responding.

Here is a link to the setting:

Let me know if you need me to render out the portion where the footage to see the flashing.

When I had the settings at "random loop" I get the flashing. When I have it at "start at birth loop," it doesn't happen but I don't get random flipping coins.

Thank again,
Jaison

I get that exact same problem. I know exactly what you are seeing, I see it all the time, and do the same as you have, just set to birth loop.

I started a thread last week on it as well.

I really hope there's some suggestions for this, it drives me crazy too.
