I'd like to shatter an image and have it explode off screen. I've brought in a psd file (it's a logo) but the shatter will not go beyond the boundary or size of the image itself. The pieces just disappear at the edge of the image size, if that makes sense. Any ideas?

I'm not sure I understand you when you say you want it to explode off screen. Do you want the object to be offscreen and shatter onto the screen from a side? If so, Shatter works with AE cameras and it's own camera system, you could just move one of the cameras(I prefer AE's rather than the effect camera) and move the object and forces offscreen.

Or did I misunderstand what you are trying to accomplish?

I just wanted the pieces to go off the screen as they shatter. They were constrained by the boundaries of the imported image, but once I pre-comped, all was well. Thanks!

Glad you were able to work it out.
