Creating Organic Particles using Trapcode Form
Inspired by the practical exploding chalk effects used in the Semi-Permanent Sydney 2014 title, Claude Autret explained to Red Giant’s Aharon Rabinowitz how he attempted to remake some of the effects in After Effects using Trapcode Form. Claude explains how he used a letter converted to a shape, to use only the outside stroke, as a layer map for Form, with really small particles, and then animate the displacement and dispersion so it explodes towards the camera.
