Join Ian Robinson for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating complex particle emitters, part of Mograph Techniques: Retiming and Tracking Footage.
While creating these initial light streaks was kind of fun, we're going to have a lot…of fun in this video creating complex emitters out of these light streaks.…So to start, let's make an adjustment to our H particles.…I want to add some dynamics to those particles, so they flow through the scene…a little more realistically. Let's load up our (INAUDIBLE) preview so…you can see what I'm talking about. I like how the streaks flow through the…scene but, notice how all the particles just kind of turn into a big mess over…here on the right side. Let's press the Spacebar to stop playback…for a second, and position our current time indicator further down the time…indicator further down the timeline around 106.…
Select the H+ logos layer, layer four. And go to the effect control panels.…Let's scroll down and open up the Physics options.…Under Physics, let's open up Air. In Air, let's increase the air resistance…to a setting of around four. Automatically we are starting to get a…little bit more definition in our particles that have been omitted.…
