Instead of starting from scratch, let's convert a preset particle system to 3D. So if you go to the Library under Particle Emitters, I want to look at Sparkles, and the one we're going to work with today is Heavy Sparkles. When you click on that you will notice we have the bunch of particles that are coming out and they sort of fall down, and that is pretty perfect because we are going to eventually match these particles back into the 3D replicator that we just recently created.

If I grab my camera and just orbit around here, I think you'll notice that these sparkles aren't very sparkly when we look at them from the side; as a matter of fact, they're pretty flat.
