  3. Motion paths in Particular can be tricky. Harry Frank brings you this overview of how to set them up, and a foolproof way to align the spline in 3D space with a simple expression.

    Expressions used in this tutorial:

    Particular Emitter Position XY:

    pos = thisComp.layer("Motion Path 1").position.valueAtTime(0);

    [pos[0], pos[1]]

    Particular Emitter Position Z:

    thisComp.layer("Motion Path 1").position.valueAtTime(0)[2]

    You can also use this preset Harry created for AE CS4+, to use (with a try/catch thing so it doesn't error):

  4. What if you want random 'particle-like' movement in your After Effects project, but more control over each of the elements in the array? In this video tutorial we'll show you how to give elements in an array random movement, but still maintain the ability to keyframe/tweak the size and position of each.
