Hi, sorry if this is the wrong forum, but I am using After Effects.
I have this particle stream where it's pouring out like salt. I'm looking for two things to happen that I can't seem to alter.
1) I would like the particles to kind of curl up and whisk away like smoke and dust does with enough interference. I can use turbulence but it just seems to bend and twist the stream out of shape. I'm looking for random particles to curl up and disappear. Almost like an upside-down fountain.
2) In the scene these particles must hit a floor and curl up at a certain x-point, much more severe than merely pealing off. In addition to 1) I need them to react to a surface and float upward like dry ice.
If anybody has run into this before and can help point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.

If somebody stumbles upon this forum thread I found the answer to question #2:
It's called Motion Path. Particular has a thing called motion path where you create a light and give it keyframes in a 'particular' path (har har) and then attach your smoke to this path like a null object and it travels like a motion guide. Way cool.
