Possibly the hardest part of this tutorial will be setting up the Shake layer.

The main effect that’s driving the shake is a Distort -> Transform effect. The position property for this effect is linked to a wiggle expression, then the second value of the wiggle expression (the amplitude) is linked to a separate Slider controller, which can then be animated to create the on/off shake effect.

Also I go over some other tricks n’ tips on achieving a nice atmosphere with Particle World, creating Light Leaks and some flashing effect.

What you will learn

• How to use Particle World

• Set up a Vertical Shake effect
