Hello, CreativeCOW members!

I'm a newbie with After Effects and I am currently trying to recreate this "particle ribbon" but I don't see how could I do it.







As you see, it is made up of red dots that make that wave (?) movement.

I have thought of making every single dot and joining them all with a Null object, but it probably won't work.

Thanks!

PS: My After Effects version is CS6, and I own Trapcode Suite.

[Marco Antonio González] "I own Trapcode Suite."

Use Trapcode Form. It's a particle array system that is built to do exactly this sort of work. There's a Getting Started guide here, including video tutorials:

Another question: Do you have any idea of how could I do the bubble?

Maybe with a mirror effect but I'm not sure.

Break it down into parts.

There's the texture to the bubble, there's the glowing outer rim, there's the fact that it reveals something other than the background. A combination of CC Sphere, some glows or blurs, additive blend modes, and track mattes can help you recreate this effect.
