Hello Guys

Just been banging my head several times on the table and have come to the end of my RND.

Please can some one help me even if its to say your mental and that can't be done. I NEED CLOSURE.

I'm trying to Emit from a single point using Trapcode particular and I want the particles to form a human shape.

I have some keyed footage and I have created the shape using form. However what my true desired effect is.......

For a single point to emit a spray and over time the density builds up to a human particle shape.

Any thoughts cleaver people.

Thanks for taking the time to read this brain fart.

All the best

The only way I can think of to achieve this is to use the human shape as the emitter and then use the Spherical Field under the Air Physics properties to 'suck' all of the particles in to one point.

Cheers Darby

I did try something like that but sadly it just didn't give me the desired effect.

Thanks ever so much for the idea though.

Do the effect in reverse. Follow any text to sand or disintegration tutorial and using the physics of Particular, spherical force field in Particular (set to a negative number), and some extra distortion effects (bezier warp maybe?) to make all the particles go to a specific point.

Precomp it.

Time reverse the precomp.
