scale CC Partical World down?
on Mar 25, 2011 at 5:01:23 am

Hello all, I am trying to scale down the world (not the particals) in CC Partical World. Anyone know how?
I am using a camera to orbit a 3D Partical stream, but the whole world is too big. i have tried to zoom out the camera, then when i orbit, it stuff's up. (I used camera tracker to generate the camera from a video, so that is why i cant zoom out).

Any help will be GLADLY accepted.
Thx



PS: i know trapcode's particular can do this stuff easy, but i want to use CC Partical World because i don't want to buy particular.

If your particles are parented to one of CameraTracker's Null layers, you can scale that Null. Not too sure if it'll help in your case but it's worth a shot.

Hi Timothy, apologies from here BUT I'm not following you clearly enough. I thought that you wanted to scale down the 'world' and not the particles.

Perhaps you can share an image of your comp so that folks here can have a better idea of what you have and where you would like to end.

Cheers

ok sorry for that, i made a mistake. i want do want to scale down the world, because it is to close to the camera. i cant just move it back in z space, because then that will ruin my camera move.

PS: ill try to upload a screenshot
