    [TRAPCODE FORM] Making a text explode into particles, then reassembling another text from those same particles.

    Oaneyl

      Good evening everyone,

       

        I want to create an animation on AE thanks to the Form plug-in by Trapcode. Roughly, I have a base text, and want it to explode into particles. I'd like those same particles, which displace on screen, to get back together after a few seconds to remake another text.

       

      I've already made the first particles explosion, and I know how to create an amount of particles to turn it into a text step by step.

       

      However, in the actual case, it would deal with a first text (or a PNG file, whatever), and roughly, I'd like to insert two different texts in the same amount of particles.

       

        I can't find out how it's possible to do such a thing, actually, the problem may come from the layer to which we have to associate the base form, apparently, we only have the possibility to select a single one layer (If I choose to select the text 1 as the base form for the effect, I can't select another text or png file to end up the animation, am I right ?)

       

        I thought of duplicating, but I don't think it would solve the problem, isn't it?

       

      Thanks in advance, I hope it is understandable, if it is not, I will do a screenshot.
