Text to sand using Particular
on Oct 16, 2010 at 8:46:55 pm

Hi there.

I am using Trapcode Particular and am wondering if it's possible to perform a text to sand transition using Particular rather than Form. The only tutorials I've found for doing this are for Form. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Many thanks!

Shawn

Thanks for the link. I've see that before and want to duplicate it, but not using Trapcode Form. I'd like to use Particular instead.

Is this possible?

Thanks,
Shawn

Not only is it possible, but I have recorded a video tutorial for you which shows you exactly how to do it. It should be up tomorrow or the next day, depending on how fast they do the artwork and links.

It was waaaaaaay better than trying to explain it. What version of After Effects and Particular do you have?

Yes, it was for you. I didnt have any plans to do that until you asked. But since you did, I felt others might like to know how to do it. Since you have cs5 and particular 2.1, you can download the project file and edit it for your own needs.

Best,
Mike

The tutorial is absolutely fantastic. It is exactly what I was hoping for. Thanks Mike!

Question, how did you learn about this technique originally?

Great stuff!

You are welcome. Glad it helped. I learned Particular by watching a few video tutorials from Aharon Rabinowtiz and then just spent a lot of time using it. As for the text to sand effect, I made that particular method up. Once you know how Particular works, you can pretty much tailor it to your needs. If you want to know more about Particular, I have a training dvd here at creative cow called Practical Particles, which pretty much covers most of the elements in Particular.

Best,
Mike
