In this chapter, we're going to look at controlling form particles with audio. …And I will tell you up front that this is one of the most challenging, complex, and …powerful features of form. So as we tend to do in this training …series, we're going to start out with a very simple basic shape here with form. …And we're just going to start very slow and then we're going to get into cool …stuff in the next couple of movies. But let's first look at or listen to …rather, our audio track in our composition here.…
(MUSIC) Okay, and then just basically breaks into a beat there. …And so again, we're going to use this audio to control form. …Now let's set form up. As I mentioned, we're not out to make …this look good here, but we do want to make it look as good as possible, so that …we can understand what's going on and not have just garbage to look at. …Now I'm going to have my grid fill the screen here, decrease y a little bit, and …let's go ahead and take the particles in x and y down.…
I'm going to take the particles in x to six, the particles in y to eight, and I'm …
