Anybody know how to get particles to bounce off of a plane in space instead of the edge of the frame? I've seen it done before, but can't seem to replicate it using the "edge collision" behavior.

Take a look at this Motion particle tutorial. It will show you how to do what you want.

The tutorial stops before it gets to the part on how to create the floor collision.

Out of curiosity, as I am also learning the finer points of Motion, would it involve a Repel behavior? Can a stationary object be set to repel other objects which move toward it, or does that behavior have to be on the moving object?

Just checked for the video update and it looks like it has not been updated yet. Can you describe the process for making a plane act as the edge for a particle system to bounce off of?
