So i`m using CC Mr.Mercury Effect and everything is going well except the fact i want specific the Heart shape to last way longer then the rest of the trail but i can`t figure out how to do this,
Any suggestion will be appreciated!

I’d probably use CC Particle World instead of Mr Mercury. You can link it to a 3D Null and have it look like smoke with just a few tweaks.

Haye to self promote, but here’s a tutorial I made showing how to link the null:

i dont understand how you are using mr mercury to produce a smoke trail with a heart in it. .but the answer is easy...do the heart seperately on its own layer
