    How to solve problem of particle trails getting cut off by comp edges

    gomerpyle3333 Level 1

      Sorry for all these questions lately!  I heard that CC composite can be used to create more black space behind an effect, but I'm having a lot of trouble applying it to my situation.  I have a particle trail with 3 layers, and need the trails to be very small in relation to the rest of my screen.  So I scaled down all my particle layers, which of course means that when I animate them to zip across the screen, they get cut off by the edges of the comp.  Unfortunately, pre-comping doesn't work because then I lose the emitter controls.  Can anyone tell me if CC composite is useful in a case like this, and if not then are there alternative solutions?

       

       

      Thank you so much!
