Particle Bounce

Particle Bounce

Particle Bounce

(OP)
Does anyone know how to control the bounce of a particle
after it hits the wall(a mask). I'm using particle playground
to shoot out objects...I want them to bounce around a little,
but not fly off screen (just hang around at the bottom.
I'm using AE5.5 Pro.
Thanks.
rick.

RE: Particle Bounce

Unfortunately the best way to figure that out is to play with all of the different settings for particle playground (or whatever filter/plugin you happen to be using). Sounds like you want to play with the gravity maybe?

RE: Particle Bounce

Check out the tutorials, there is a particle bounce tutorial that will show you how to set another layer or mask as a "wall".
But quickly if you check the wall setting in the particle effects options you will find that it allows you to specify a boundary.
