How can you make the particles in particular to be evenly distributed along the sphere after it shoots out from the center?

(this is what i got. i used aux and then keyframe the PhysicsTF to freeze it)

but i want it to look more or less like this. to somehow make a perfect shape of the sphere)

hope you can help me on this.. thank you so much :)

Set particular to a point emitter
on frame 0 keyframe particles/sec to 1000 or some high number
on frame 1 Keyframe particles/sec to 0
set velocity random to 0

away you go!!

The spacing of the particles is still random but they will form a good spherical shape now. Trapcode form may get you exact spacing if you need it although my first choice would be to use 3D studio Max.
