Need for Speed
By Sarah Wise
Published on Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

COOKIE is UK motion designer, director & VFX artist James Andrew Cook, a senior motion designer for award-winning advertising agency Empire Design in London. Having worked with design, film and advertising agencies for over 15 years, he has built up an impressive portfolio.

His most recent work was on the movie trailer and TV adverts for ‘Senna,’ which won the 2011 World Cinema Documentary Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival. ‘Senna’ tells the story of the late Formula 1 driver, Ayrton Senna, through archival footage of his life, on and off the racetrack. Trapcode Particular helped shape a fast-paced sequence that perfectly complemented a film devoted to speed.

“I’ve been using Trapcode plugins – my favourite is Particular – on practically a daily basis since I first discovered them back in 2004”, James told us. ”From subtle touches – drifting dust to add realism to a project, for example – to dramatic effects like bursts of light and sparks, I’ve always found that Trapcode plug-ins enable me to create new and exciting visual pieces.”

“I recently posted a new preset over at RedGiantPeople for Trapcode Particular. It’s called “Sparkler” and it is based off of images of writing your name with a sparkler. You can see the example below. In this tutorial, I wanted to show you how you can write YOUR name with the preset using After Effects and Motion Sketch. By the way, If you don’t own Particular, what the heck are you doing with your life? Go Get it!!!

Thanks Nick!!! This is awesome! Folks – Get the Free preset right HERE.

Just saw this fun video spoofing the Smoke Monster from Lost, by Seth Worley, using Trapcode Particular.

Lost Promo Contest – “The Only Mystery Left” from Seth Worley on Vimeo.

About the video Seth says:

“I made this as a submission to ABC’s “Ultimate Lost Fan Promo” Contest, but ABC never posted in on their site. I emailed them to find out if they even received it, and just got back an automated reply. Oh well. Enjoy it here.”

Well, Seth, we at Red Giant absolutely loved it, so we’re showing it here. If we could have voted, we’d have voted for you.

By the way, Trapcode Particular was actually used in “Lost” – you can read more about it here.

New Episode of Red Giant TV
By Aharon Rabinowitz
Published on Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

Hey folks – Another great Episode of Red Giant TV coming at you this week. This one comes from Rob Birnholz of Absolute Motion Graphics.


Episode 20: Creating a 3D Picture Montage with Trapcode Particular

In this Episode, Rob Birnholz shows you a great technique for quickly creating a 3D picture montage with Trapcode Particular. It takes just minutes to set up, but can save you hours of work.

Transporter effects, and binary transitions are cool and fun, but very rarely do we have a tutorial with a project that can be used in so man situations, and help you really make money. This one will be great for anyone who has corporate clients, but it’s applicable to so much more.

You can watch the episode here.

BTW – the episode opens with a sneak peak at Particular 2, so don’t miss it!

And, as always, just for watching the episode, you can get a discount on Trapcode particular (with free upgrate to particular 2) here.
