In order to add a little bit more depth and interest to our particle animation,…we'll add two more passes, a pass of dust and a slightly softer pass of clouds.…Now I want our new particles passes to be created based off our old particle system…that way we don't have to worry about positioning our particle emitter in the…scene, it will just follow along to what we already have currently.…So to get started, let's select layer 6 and press Cmd+D on a Mac or Ctrl+D on…Windows to duplicate. Once that layer has been duplicated, let's…go ahead and rename the layer. I'll change the name to Dust.…
Now, just so we can focus on this dust pass, let's go ahead and solo this layer…and go to our Effect Controls. Before we make any changes, we should go…ahead and press the Reset button. This will reset the majority of the…effects for our particle animation. Notice now our particles are set up as…spheres. If we open our emitter options, you can…clearly see that we still have our key frames and we also have our expressions.…
