Hey,

I wanna create a dustcloud with After Effects when someone is jumping and hitting the ground. Like in this video at 0:45







I tried it with Trapcode Particular but it didnt look like that. And I didnt found any Tutorials for excactly this kind of dust. Would be nice if anyone could help me out.

Thanks, Finn

It's usually much easier and better looking to use real footage of dust rather than trying to create realistic-looking dust with a particle effect. Either shoot some dust yourself or get a stock footage element, and composite it in. You can use various effects to distort, color, and otherwise modify the base element(s) to fit in your scene.

Here's one of my favorite sites for such assets:

It looks like they used one from Action Essentials 2
