Trapcode Particular Mask Emitters
Mask Emitters in version 4.1
Using the Red Giant Trapcode Particular's new "Write-On" effect with a mask emitter I animated my logo with smoldering particles. Just a solid layer with some simple masks drawn, then using particular you tell the effect what layer to use for the mask, then you key frame the path end property. Of course you can't forget to add Video Copilot's Optical Flares for that finishing touch!
