Is there a way to create a custom shape for a the scatter effect? I am trying to create an effect where smaller cubes form a larger cube. I tried using the square pre-scatter effect but it is not what my client wants. Any suggestions?

Since a cube is a 3D object, it makes me think that a 3D program or a plug-in would be a better approach. Cinema4D lite comes with AE. Commercial plug-ins for AE that do this type of thing include Element 3D (fully 3D) and Form (partially 3D: individual particles are 2D). Or it could be done in a separate 3D program.

I will have to do that then. Here is what I have so far. As you can see, the cubes do not match up as well as I would like.
