Creating a dramatic meteoric show and impact scene, Adrian C. Koutz shows how to use TrapCode Particular in After Effects to build fireballs and smoke trails, sharing tips for compositing to achieve as realistic a scene as possible.

The great take-away from this is that Adrian shows how to set up the composition in After Effects so that it can be easily reused multiple times in the main composition, having everything work as expected.
