Particular Path Smoothing

Hey All,

Been a while since I've used Particular for this specific effect but I've got a light emitter rotating around a null emitting a streaklet (particular 2.0). Everything's great except i'm getting the choppy angles in the emission stream caused by rotating around the null. I know there's a way to smooth it out and get a nice round path but can't remember how to do it for the life of me!

Anybody throw me a bone off the top of there head?

Thanks!
Ryan

Go into the "Position Subframe" and try "10x Linear" or higher. Also, make sure that Velocity from Motion is zero, as (for some reason) that doesn't respond to the subframe sampling.

I knew it was something dumb I was missing.

Hey Harry,
I've got a path and am using the Aux system to create some strokes. Is there a way to smooth these out?





Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
Michael

I would use a second instance of Particular for the lines rather than the aux system, then you can smooth the paths normally (as described above).

Actually, I solved the problem. There are "HQ" options for the motion path and that allowed me to have smoother path. Not sure why Trapcode doesn't use the same options in Aux system or at least the same wording. Nevertheless, this works. Thanks,
Michael
