Hey everyone i'm trying to make a snow scene in AE. How i have the scene set up is that it i have a cloud and the video zooms out from the cloud into a hospital room through the window and as it's zooming out it's snowing. I created the snow using Particle Playground but as it zooms into the hospital room the snow is also falling inside the hospital room. Which obviously i don't want. I just want it on the outside of the window. Not sure how to fix it any ideas?

Precomp your particle playground layer, moving all effects into the precomp, then either mask or matte the area you want the snow to appear.
