For the most part, that will be filter behavior specific. If the filter you are using takes a source object (like Repel, for example) then you can drop any object in the source well. I don't know if t
The most efficient way to load a background image...

Hi again. I've been trying to model a car based on a provided blueprint but I am finding that I must map those blueprints to a plane or else they aren't visible. Is there another way that the image ca

Additionally, if you want to be able to see your ref images in perspective mode, simply apply them to plane primitives of equal dimension and set them up carefully so they align with eachother.

Thanks, I'm pretty sure the collision works. Though there is no collision node, so I used dynamics - repulse bounce and assigned the same group to particle a and particle b inputs. Not sure, but it ma

I'm trying to envision this and having trouble. I'd say you can create these footprints textoids in a program outside of AE like Photoshop or illustrator. Illustrator specifically is good at allowing

Why not apply the effects to the nested comp in the master comp instead of within the nested comp This may be able to get you around what sounds to me like a collapse transformations issue. Yussef

Well you can definitely use a particle system for the rain. The ground reflecting the rain however would be mighty hard. If anything, you'll need a 3D app for that one. Maybe you can do it in your bat

If you have a particle system, obviously fog is going to be one of their presets. Like Trapcode particular for example would have great fog - and then you can use the inverse mask of your character fo

You have to activate 3d for that object before sizing and positioning it. If you zoom out quite a bit you'll see it's wireframe somewhere, probably very lost, but it's there... Yussef
