Join Ian Robinson for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating animated streaks, part of Mograph Techniques: Retiming and Tracking Footage.
In order to create 3D flowing streaks, we need to make some adjustments to our…particle emitters. Let's scrub through our animation and see…where our project currently resides. Now we definitely have 3D emitters…rotating around a football. But we don't have any stress, so we need…to make an adjustment to our particles layer.…So select layer three and go to the effect controls for the particles.…First thing you'll notice, we have our emitter type, which are lights, and we…have two emitters in the scene so it's emitting twice, and that's perfectly…fine... Let's look at some of the other settings…that we need to adjust. The most important one is velocity.…
I want the movement of the lights to actually create the particles, and I don't…necessarily want any velocity on any of the particles.…So let's change velocity to zero, and press Tab and change the random percentage…to zero and the distribution to zero. We can even zero out the velocity for…motion. Now just so we have precise streaks let's…change the emitter size on the x axis to two and the emitter size for y to one and…
