This is probably pretty easy, just want thoughts on what the best way to accomplish it might be.
There is an object I want to animate. I'd like to start with the object being broken up into hundreds or thousands of little floating particles. Kind of like floating dust particles in a room. Over time I want the particles to slowly come together to form the object.
It would be cool to give it some depth as well. Have some particles be bigger and out of focus in the foreground, etc.
Any cool ways to do this? Thanks very much in advance!
I've been messing around with Trapcode Form and got pretty close to what I want.
There's one thing that's happening that I can't figure out how to fix. Driving me nuts! There are times when my particles go transparent. Looks like maybe there are white particles that are passing in front of the colored ones. I'm using a camera to try and give it some depth. Maybe that's causing it somehow? Sorry...obviously not an AE expert.
Trying to embed the video so you can see it. Hope that works. :)
It does look like you may have white particles in there as well- not being able to look at your setup makes it hard to tell. Turn off the background gradient and look at your particles on black- that will confirm if the particles disappear or if they are just covered by white ones.
