    I’m trying to make a layer in AE burst into flies. I have particular, but I really don’t know where to start when it comes to the actual destrution of the layer, making the bugs is cake.

    When you select you particle emitter, change it to “Layer.” Then select the layer you want to “explode.”

    NOTE: You may have to adjust the amount of particles to an insane amount to get it to look good.

    I did this a few weeks ago on some text, and I had the particle count at 150,000.

    works AWESOME. The only problem is that i’m having leftover particles —

    after it blows up, there is still that layer in the back.
    i cut down the particles per second to 0, and the velocity to 0 also

    A thought. Are you talking about the Particular plug-in from trapcode or particleillusion? Your subject posted was particle but your post comment references particular which is a trapcode plug-in. Just curious.
