If you guys are looking for some great training, if I do say so myself, check out my new CreativeCow Master Series DVD, Practical Particles. It is 4 1/2 hours of video tutorial training covering all things Particular. But in addition to concepts relating to Particular, I also discuss some handy expressions, how to make presets and re-use them, how to create 3d scenes, plus much, much more. If you are interested, check out the trailer found here: http://reels.creativecow.net/film/michael-park-commercial
I am glad you are enjoying the dvd. I have several new tutorials cooking and will record them when things slow down. Until then, have fun with Practical Particles and show me any cool stuff you make with it. If you have any specific questions regarding Particular or the dvd, post them here and I will try to help you as soon as I can.
