I am trying to use Trapcode Particular to create a short sky writing effect. (whispy type, cloud like) I am just not sure were to get started. Does anyone know of any tutorials? Or any tips on how to go about this?

Thank you in advance.

There are a few smoke presets and a "sky type" preset that come with Particular--something to start with at least.

Also, check out this:

There is a "skytype" preset that comes with particular for creating a smoke text. Apply that to a layer and it already has the word "type" written in smoke, if you press "U" you will see that it's accomplished by using the emitter position to write the text and turning on and off the particle birth when moving to the next letters/stroke.
