Hi Everyone,

I just dropped a lot of cash on a new computer and software.

I want to create this effect to be used in a music video:

Except I can't afford purchasing Trapcode Particular at this time.

Is there any other way to create this effect, or something like it using ADOBE CREATIVE SUITE MASTER COLLECTION CS5 and or FINAL CUT PRO?

Thanks for any help!

you can get fairly close with cc particle world... it's also a 3d particle system, though not as robust.

you may want to check out some of the tutorial/samples that cycorefx has (they're the makers of the "CC" effects bundled with ae):

the 'link ae3d to pw3d' is particularly useful.

also, has several tutorials that use particle world that you can check out to see how that compares to what you've seen andrew do with particular.
