Activity Forums Adobe After Effects Trapcode Form screen space particle size

  • Trapcode Form screen space particle size

    Posted this question over on the Trapcode section of Cow, but didn’t get any responses in 4 years… So let’s try here ?

    Is there a setting to keep Form particles the same size no matter the distance from the camera?

    Perfectly sized micro dots turn into planet-crushing meteors as my camera Z-translates through a point cloud of Form particles.

    In X-Particles for C4D, they have a scale setting called “screen space” that keeps them visually the same size, no matter the distance from the camera.

    Any way to achieve this in Form v2.2?

    Doesn’t seem to be an option in Form but it is doable in Plexus, probably not a very helpful answer though.
    There is a check-box under the points-renderer for “points perspective aware”
    It should take a point cloud in a similar way to Form so not too much work to translate the work if you happen to have plexus.
