Hello, I'm new here and glad to have found a forum with experienced AE users. I'm trying to create an effect in AE with particles that will look like a face. First I need to know how to assign materials like a png or something to the systems particles. Second, I need to know how to shape the particle system into the shape of a face (i need 3d depth, not just a flat 2d) Say if i was trying to make a scene where a bunch of pieces of paper blowing in the wind form into a face then blow away. How could I do this. It sounds hard, i hope it's not. Any help would be appreciated. Thnx
