Making particles stick to a moving target using Trapcode Particular
by Nick Blake on Nov 26, 2012 at 11:19:26 am
I'm building a composition in After Effects CS5 using a Trapcode Particular to create a fizzing/bubble effect, to look like champagne. I want to drop a logo into the composition (as if into a champagne glass), and hoping if anyone can give me some tips on making it look realistic.
I want bubbles to cluster around the logo, slightly obscuring it (although we should still see the colouring of the logo behind), then to stream off to reveal the logo behind. I'm using an image of a bubble which I have assigned to the particle system in a texture menu to create a layered comp of particles.
How can I make the bubbles cluster around and stick to the logo, make them transparent so the logo's colouring can be seen, although partially obscured buy the bubbles, then stream off for the logo's reveal?
Would really appreciate your advice. Hoping it's not too complicated.
