Oscilloscope wave
on Mar 6, 2014 at 9:05:13 pm

Hi - I'm looking to create a simple oscilloscope type sine wave using either form or particular...I've checked the web inside out with no joy. I've also tried altering some of the presets that come with form with no luck either. My only option now is to use a wave warp distortion effect on a pen stroke but it looks very fake. Can anyone recommend a tutorial for achieving this effect in one of the trapcode products?

Hey Joey,

I don't have a tutorial but I whipped up a quick project:

7397_particularsinewave.aep.zip

This is Particular with a light emitter and a second light for the "motion path."

The current sine path is expression generated on the motion path, however you could manually create your own path instead if you prefer.

The entire rig may be moved / rotated in 3D space using the "Positioner" null.

Hope that helps!
