Learn how to create some interesting trail effects with Particular.

In this tutorial i go over how you can set up a Light inside After Effects and have it orbit around an object ( in this case our text ). Then we can use this light as an emitter for our particles.

The next step will be to set up our particles in an interesting way and see how we can colour them to look like a trail of magic dust.

What you will learn

• Create a light based Emitter

• Adjust Particular Settings

• Create magic dust-like particles


• After Effects CS5 (and above)

• Trapcode Particular
