    I searched the archives for something similar and I do know how to disentegrate a logo but I would like to have my logo or text turn into some bats (Pauls bat emitter) and fly away.

    Has anyone attempted something like this?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Steve

    Here’s a project I made for NAB that does that, with Aharon’s bird shape.
    https://pi.shockingtales.com/zips/crows.zip

    It’s really the exact same principles as the disintegration projects, but with an animated shape on the particles that the object turns into. Looks best with motion blur turned on.

    Thanks Elvis,

    I should have known you’d jump in first and no, I don’t mind.

    Any sign of a new CD soon?

    My wallets open!

    Take Care,
    Steve

    There’s a DVD on the way very soon. Production of it is all wrapped up, so it’s just a matter of working out the distribution stuff. It’s more of a how to use pI this time around rather than a “how to make effects” one.

    Elvis,

    This will be good for me as well as I’ve been fumlin’ through all these years anyway. If it wasn’t for your tutorials or this forum I’d have to read the manual. 🙂

    Take Care,
    Steve

    Elvis,

    Everytime I try and load the Crows Project it corrupts (saying it isn’t a valid particleillusion project file).
    Tried downloading it a number of times from two different computers with the same result.
    Wondered if you had any ideas.

    Thanks,

    Razor.
    ps. Loving your work.

    Have you got the 3.01a update from the wondertouch downloads page? That’s the usual reason people get that error. Otherwise, I’m not sure. It opens up fine here if I download it.
