I have looked for a tutorial but could not find it.

My goal is to animate text starting very far away and coming, with increasing speed, towards the camera. At a certain point the text stops moving and a dust effect + an audio hit effect will make it look like the text hit something.

See the picture below what I mean. The dust right now is not looking like dust. It should look something like the beginning of this video:

I have After Effect cs6 with the trapcode particular plugin.

Could anyone help me out? Either with a tutorial or with a an explanation of how the trapcode particular settings should be to let it look like real dust.

Thanks in advance.
