After Effects Plugins: Red Giant Trapcode Particular Intro



Red Giant Trapcode Particular—an industry-standard particle generator—is one of the most important plugins for Adobe After Effects and part of the larger Trapcode Suite of tools. In this course, participants will learn how to create a basic emitter and particle systems. They will also examine different kinds of emitters and particle attributes; discover how to create custom particles and multiple systems, as well as, how lights and cameras are integrated with particle systems.
