hi there,

I'm trying to create a snow effect, and i need the snow particle to gather and "stick" to the upper edge of a 2d tree in the middle of my comp.

tried to use particular trapcode's "bounce" option (with "stick" turned on) but it doesn't help since it needs a 3d layer which is facing its flat side towards the particles.


any ideas guys?

I'm not sure specifically what you are going for - but a simple solution would be to gradually turn on / reveal layers of snow that you designed already on the tree. In addition, you could add a few "hero particles" that you animate specifically to fall with the other snow and land on the tree. The combination of the two should create some believable results.

A search for Snow in the CreativeCOW tutorials section pulls up this tutorial. It looks ideal for you.

wow, thanks!

exactly what i needed!
too bad it uses particle playground and not particular since it isn't that flexible considering all the other features, but i guess it should give me a good start for what i need.
