View Full Version : Shatter Effect problem

03 March 2005, 05:27 AM
I am having a problem with the shatter effect in AAE. I created a layer to place over a background and shrinked it down in size. I applied the shatter effect to it and wanted to make the layer explode. But when the layer exploded, the blown up particles stayed within the layer's boundary or box size (they were cut off). Does anyone know a way to get the particles to escape outside the boundary and keep traveling across the background?

Thanks for any advice

The layer must be full size. There are camera position settings available for this effect. That way you can "scale and rotate the exploding layer" to your liking...

the best think you can do after a scale just pre-composed it to another comp and use this comp with your shatter effect
