Im making a commercial where 2 ingredients jump together and explode, leaving a single product. I would like to make some kind of cool funky love explosion that kinda takes the shape of a heart as it fades. Imagine a firework burst that take a heart shape. Can someone point me in the right direction how I could do this with particular?
Thanks in advance
Not sure Particuar is the best fit for this effect. You can emit particles in a heart shape by using a layer with a heart on it and then telling Particular to use it as a layer emitter, but the problem you are going to run into is that there is no way to have the particles explode outward in that pattern. You could try to fake it by creatively using a camera move and starting the camera out far and rushing toward the particle fast to simulate the particles going outward, but it probably still wont be convincing. Do you have 3ds max or access to it? This effect could be done in about 3 minutes using Particle flow.
