Hi Darbi, thank you for responding -

Ok, 1 spherical field per emiter.
and, Trapcode Form would allow me to use 2 spherical fields per emitter.

- - - - -

Let me explain you better what my project is about. Its kind of a simple video mapping.
I have a white face mask, hanged on a wall i want to beam to. I am producing the video in after effect, and using particular.
I vectorized, the outline + eyes in 3 closed strokes. I am already emiting particles (little dots) from both eyes, through layer emiter.

From the outlines of the eyes little dots appear to spread around the face.
I determined there would be 2 areas of the mask where i didnt want my particles to go.

So, right now ive 2 issues to resolve.

Tell these (ideally) custom bezier or bitmap shapes, wich right now are circular spherical fields to repel the particles emited.

Tell the outline stroke of my mask to repel the particles that — for this, i guess my outline stroke would have to be a Spherical Field itself.

If theres the need for me to change to form:
- Do i need to re-asign my emiters ?
- con i grab particular emiters, and use Form Spherical fields?

Note: i have form 2.0.3, if i changed would i be able to do this with this version?

Thank you very much!!
André Macedo
