A new tutorial from Reza Sarkamari shows how you can have particle emitters in Maya follow along custom paths. The tutorial shows how you can work with Maya nParticles and Nucleus to attach particles along a curve.
You could also choose to swap a nParticle workflow for a Bifrost one. Check out Bifrost visual programming wizard Bruce Lee’s Curve Influence Tool that uses Bifrost fields, influences, and curves to create some pretty neat effects.
