By JoshfilmsThis tutorial will help you to understand the process animating a null in Cinema 4D as a place holder for particles in After Effects. You will need C4D, After Effects and the plugin Trapcode Particular. You might be able to apply this to the built in particles of AE like cc particle world but I haven't tried it. I also use a object buffer for changing the color of text and for isolating objects instead of having to rotoscope.
