I'm using the Trapcode training program for Particular (by Harry Frank) and was wondering if there is a way to produce complex explosions (similar to the one in chapter 10 of his program) in true 3D space. I'm trying to rotate around and through the explosion sequence, but this example from chapter 10 is made up of many layers. I'm not sure how to do what I'm trying to do - or if it's possible.
The explosion you are talking about should be in 3D space. Particular is a 3D particle system that reacts to camera movement. Make sure you add a camera to the comp and are using the comp with the Particular layers (not the precomped layers with compositing elements added)
