Quba Michalski is back with a new tutorial for After Effects creating floating particles as well as its preset. Quba shows how to create a floating particle effect using The After Effects Text Animator environment. The Floaties tutorial explores ways to emulate some of the behavior found in Trapcode Particular, providing a free and simple alternative. For more great After Effects tutorials and presets check out QubaHQ, and check out the Floaties Text Animator Based Floating Particle Simulator Tutorial for After EFfects here.
Floaties is a new preset from Quba Michalski allowing you to create floating dust particles, light glitters and other effects using After Effects’ own, built-in text animator tools. It has been created to simulate some of the functions of (much more robust) Trapcode Particular plugin and is distributed free of charge via QubaHQ. The particles generated using Floaties preset are fully compatible with After Effects cameras and can be used as both 2D or 3D effect.
Quba Michalski notes: “In this tutorial I will demonstrate the use of a new free preset from QubaHQ.com – Floaties. Floaties is a text animator based fake particle simulator allowing you to create floating specs of dust, glitters, bokeh-style out of focus abstract backgrounds and other visual elements.”
