Join Ian Robinson for an in-depth discussion in this video Fine-tuning the Form particles, part of Mograph Techniques: Retiming and Tracking Footage.
Now that we have a very color correction on our background plate we can go ahead…and stylize our particle systems. So let's move our current time indicator…to frame 10. Just so we can see the particles more…clearly let's change the magnification up to 100% and make sure we can see our…particles in this scene. Now this form was created with a Base…Particles layer. So select Layer 2 and go to the Effects…Control panel. In here we need to make some adjustments…to our particles themselves. So let's open up the Particles section and…in here let's decrease the Opacity down to around 40%.…
And just so all the particles aren't the same let's increase the opacity randomness…up to 100%. Now just so you can see things more…clearly I'll turn off my adaptive resolution.…To add a little bit more pop to these particles lets add another trap code…plugin. I'll go up under Effects and go down to…Trapcode. And this time we'll choose Starglow.…Starglow is also a plugin available in the Trackcode suite from Red Giant.…Let's start by adjusting the input channel.…
