How to make particles stay on the ground (trail effect)
by Pit Mahoney on Feb 17, 2012 at 2:08:19 am
I am a newbie and as such I would need your help.
I am trying to apply a particle effect using Trapcode Particular to a mountain bike wheel.
The problem is that the footage has a camera pan to the right and I don't know how to apply the tracking I got from mocha. I want the particles to "stay on the ground" but I can't understand what to do.
This is a link to the footage I am working on: http://vimeo.com/36940592
Hope you guys can help me out.

It's not a straightforward job but what you'll have to do is use expressions to link the tracking data from Mocha to the Particular properties. If you've never used expressions before I recommend these websites to help you get started;
Hope this helps!
