Element: Making a Liquid from the Motion Design kit a multi object

Hi Guys! I've been looking for a reason to play with Element and thought of one this morning.
I'm doing a shot of a guy self-administering a Heimlich Maneuver. I thought it would be fun to have a spray of spit emerge with the steak.

Right now I've got a layer with Particle Illusion and it looks okay, but I thought that if i could animate one of the liquid models in Element, it might look better.

So far I can't make the liquid into multiple objects. I followed Andrew's Tute where he mentions selecting: Multi-Object/Enable. But this doesn't seem to do the trick.

Is there a fast way to do this? I'm dropping the attempt for now and trying to make particles out of primitives.

Thanks for any suggestions!

MIKE

I'm going to try to cut out water (spit) drops and apply them the same way I would use text. Then maybe I can use small primitives for the smaller droplets.

I'll let you know how it works.

Oh, hey. There's a water drop in the primitives. Very handy!

Hi Mike -

One thought on the water droplets. When someone does the Heimlich manuever, the result is pretty explosive. I would think that a simple particle expulsion/explosion from a point or area, with motion blur turned on would remove the need for actual 3D, since it happens so fast. Just a thought...
