Particle Systems - Pg. 389

Motion for After Effects Users 389 Particle Systems Motion has incredibly intuitive real-time particle systems. In conjunction with behaviors, particle systems can create just about any 2D particle effect you're after. Each particle can inherit behaviors to cause it to randomly move on an individual motion path, scale up or down, accelerate via gravity, swarm around a specific object, or even be repelled by an object. Motion ships with a host of presets, but the interface makes it very easy to develop custom effects for specific applications. In addition, anything in Motion can become a particle--a QuickTime movie, a still, shapes, text, or even a nested layer of elements. Text in Motion Motion has a comprehensive text feature set, with three tabs full of tweakable parameters in the user interface. It ships with dozens of text preset effects, which can be previewed in real time.
