    Having particles follow and orient along many paths - how or which plugin?

    nicknameforme Level 1

      I want to have many many particles flowing along a series of branching paths.  Probably 3d paths.  It's likely they will be arrows so they would need to orient themselves as well.

       

      I have Trapcode Particular and it does this sort of thing, however I have had some issues with it and I'm not convinced it's the best tool for the job. 
      Does anyone know of other solutions, either built into After Effects CS5 or third-party plugins?

       

      I'd really like a very sophisticated particle handler -- almost like what is available in some 3D software where particles can split up and follow different rules.
