How to change a particle to your own picture in Trapcode Particular 2

How to change a particle to your own picture in Trapcode Particular 2

2012.5.27

I’m touching Trapcode Particular 2 and it’s difficult. It’s rudimentary, but I’ll make a note of it so I don’t forget it.

The general flow of the work

  1. Create a new composition.
  2. Create a new plane.
  3. Apply the Particular to the created plane.
  4. Load a picture of your choice (in this case, cherry blossom petals) into your project.
  5. Place the cherry blossom petals on the lime line and hide them.
  6. Select the plane to which you applied the Particular and select the Effect tab.
  7. Select Particle→ Particle→ Sprite.
  8. Particle→ Texture→ Select the “Sakura” layer.

This will apply the cherry blossom petals to the Particular. I made a simple video to show you how to do this, so you can watch it here.
