James Mosegrowing daisies animation?

Hi Guys,

Need some advice/help.

I need to create an animation of a top down view of grass (maybe wavy)
and then daisies growing up and randomly spreading out across the screen.

Any ideas how to go about this in after effects?

Many thanks

particular can do that. It all depends on realism and camera angles. If its a more cartoony look or more convincing. I would create some hand animated daisies and vary the master a number of ways and composite them with more control than a particle system would give me... Hard to say without more detail.

I would go in and do it all by hand and then just duplicate the layers. Try cutting out a few pieces of grass out of green solids and then make move the vertex to the base of the grass piece. Now just give it a wiggle. You will obviously not want to have a camera pointing strait down for this =P
To make the daises, just animate stem (that you can cut out of a green solid) growing, animate a yellow solid scaling, and then animate a few peddles growing. After that, pre-compose it and move the whole thing around ;)
For the ground, I think the best thing to do would be to go outside and take a picture of the ground.
