In order to speed up the render time, I'm going to disable the motion…blur as well as double thicken the camera and also dismiss the depth of field.…Then let's return to the element 3D layer, and select it.…And let's go to the effect controls, and I'm going…to work with group number one which has our 3D type.…So let's open it up, and I'm going to open the particle look over here.…
