Never being one to leave well enough alone, I figured this was the perfect time…to add more particles and dimension to our light streaks.…After all, they do look a little flat right now.…Now just so we don't have to start from scratch every time, let's duplicate Layer…3. But before we do that, let's make sure the…layer is named properly. If we turn the visibility off and on, you…can see these are our light streaks. So let's rename this layer, Light Streaks.…(SOUND) Now you can press Command+D on the Mac or Control+D on Windows to duplicate…that layer. Let's rename our new layer h-plus logos.…
(SOUND) Now we'll use the H+ Logos as a particle for a custom emitter.…So in order to specify that logo, we need to actually make sure to add it into our…composition. So let's open our Pre-comps folder, and…drag our Logo Particle Precomp down into the timeline.…Now this is only going to be a reference, so we can turn off the visibility of that…layer. If we go back to our H+ Logos layer, we…can open the Effect Controls, and specify our new H+ layer as the particle.…
