In this tutorial, Harry Frank shows you how to EASILY turn Text into sand (and back again) using the new features in Trapcode Form 2.
You can also do this with Trapcode Form 1, but it requires a few extra steps. Features were added in Trapcode Form 2 to make this speciffic task a LOT easier. Watch "Creating a Text to Sand Transition" (Form 1) HERE.

Thanks a lot for the tutorial! I have a noob question please bear with me! What if i have a logo and 2 text layers that i want to animate simultaneously? This means that i have to apply form on each layer that i wish to transform to sand? Thanks in advance!

GREAT tutorial! I'm new to the Trapcode Suite, and these tutorials are well done and easy to follow. Maybe the next version should be called Trapcode Sweet!

Emre - let me start by asking: are you using Particular or Form (you wrote particular)? This is a tutorial for Form.

Hi Aharon, Thanks for the great tutorials mate. I'm having a small issue with this one though : I just created a simple compI wrote some text and I draged it in my timeline as a source layer and for some reason I'm not able to get that text to be formed by the particles. Instead it just sticks to the screen and particles are floating around the text. Do I need to animate a particular setting when I create my text layer?

Anthony - no worries. If you read the notes above it says: You can also do this with Trapcode Form 1, but it requires a few extra steps.

I am using a different version of Trapcode Form (v1.1.2) and I do not have the map offset feature in Quick Maps for Map #1 Map #2 or Map #3. What should I do?

Hi Taylor - I feel your pain. Being an animator for over a decade, I am constantly finding that the way I like to do things changes from, software version to software version. But the good news here is that while the way we show you here is actually a lot easier, if you like doing it the old way, you can still do that! The old pre-comping method still works.

why do they have to keep changing the ways to do this every time i figure out how to do it there is a better way and i have to learn it all over again .
