Connect Particles with splines/lines in Trapcode Form
on Jan 6, 2014 at 10:09:53 pm

Hi guys,

I am working with Trapcode Form and as of right now I have a grid that I am manipulating to an audio mix. I am wondering if there is anyway to connect all these particles with lines, like an actual grid? I've seen the technique done before, but I just don't know exactly how people manage to do it.

Thanks

Hi,

If you use a dense grid of particles in Form, you could use a layer - in the form of a grid - as an alpha map to only show the 'lines'. Or you could use another instance of Form with the 'Strings' base form (two copies to get lines in both directions).
