Crowd Tutorial Coming Soon!

…But not from me. This one is from my good friend, Harry Frank of GrayMachine.com.

Next week’s episode of Red Giant TV promises to be an amazing one  – it covers creating a crowd with Trapcode Particular 2.0. Building off of Harry’s work in the tutorial, I created this scene:

A still image doesn’t do it justice, so watch the video.You can also watch a smaller version here.

Believe it or not, this entire crowd was created using ONLY 5 Crowd Control clips:

PS: Harry and I are actually working on a tutorial together – But I’m not telling about what. And I guarantee – you won’t guess.

  1. About a year ago I tried a fast camera move through a crowd set up with particular 1.5. Everything worked fine, execpt there where some of the crowd particles flickering or popping in and out. I hope with particular2 this problem is no more…

  2. I actually encountered this myself, but I simply changed the emitter’s random seed value, and it fixed the problem. I *think* it has to do with 2 images occupying the same space at once. I’ll ask about it though.
