The Second part of multi-part tutorial showing how to use the After Effects native Particle World effect to create transitions for text, logos, and images with Rob Mize hosting. Check out the Particle World Transitions in After Effects tutorial here.
Rob Mize further develops the techniques demonstrated in Part 1 of this tutorial. He applies the Particle World Text to Sand effect to 3D text created using the Shatter Effect, and composites that onto a background. He then reverses the effect, changing sand into an onscreen character who finally, blows away as dust in the wind.
