Hi everyone!
I have used particle playground to generate a bunch of confetti in a still photo. My problem is, I want the effect to move in slow motion, but I want all the confetti to follow the same path its following right now. I can't seem to slow down the movement, aside from precomposing the comp and time remapping, but that looks stuttery.
Any ideas?

Have you tried the Persistent Property Mapper? You can use a gradient to control the speed in either X or Y.

Thanks, Brian, that does look like one way of achieving the effect that I wanted.
What I ended up doing was changing the comp frame rate to 99fps, exporting a tiff sequence that i import at 24fps. Made the effect look like nice slick slow motion.
