Im looking to create an effect similar to the one seen in this world cup 2010 sequence
I would of liked to of used stroked paths (as Im used to using paths in 3DS Max) but as far as I can tell paths in AE do not have a Z depth(or do they?). I would prefer to stay away from 3rd party plug-ins. I thought about using lights or null objects but they do not offer the high degree of control and flexibility as a path would and I really need to get the movement to match the depth of other elements in the scene(which include live footage).
You can also do that with CC Particle World. It's not as powerful as Particular, but it comes with AE, so it has that going for it :)
I think this tutorial uses (or at least mentions how to use) CC Particle World, but I don't remember and I don't have the time to check it...(got a meeting I have to run off to.)
