Hi there im trying to create a particle effect similar to first few seconds of this

I can get a similar effect using Particular and a custom particle to get the streaky stroke but I then have no control over the stroke to move it..

Any ideas?

Depending on how much movement you need you might try just pre-comping the particle streaks and use Mesh Warp or another Distort effect along with position, scale, rotation animation. Of course, if you need to distort it a lot with Mesh Warp it could alter the thickness of the streaks unevenly.

For something similar you could just design each of the strokes in AI, apply glow (in 32 bit) in AE and use FreeForm Pro to distort and animate in 3d space.
