I am trying to apply the BCC 5 3D shatter effect to some text in a 2D motion 3 project. I have an arrow coming down it hits the text and the text shatters. The problem is the shattered pieces don't fly out of the Motion scaling box that surrounds the text. This is the box that you grab to resize or move the text around.

Does anyone know I I can scale the box so all the shattered pieces are seen, with out scaling the text and pieces inside the box.

You need to precomp or nest the text so that it can provide the shatter filter a full frame size bounding box and thereby shatter the pieces over the full frame of the composite.

I hope this helps.

Thanks Peter. I ended up sending two files to FCP and applied the shatter effect there. I will try your suggestion also it sounds like a better idea the what I ended up doing.
