I’m using the plugin version but not in After Effects – how can I emit particles from text?

Apply PI to your text layer (or any layer that contains alpha transparency information), then in PI search for “logo” and add the “Logo Burst 01” emitter – its particles take both their color and alpha from the source layer.


In general, add any emitter (probably Area or Box) and select the particle node. In the Color / Alpha section there is an “Alpha Type” parameter: set it to “Alpha from layer”. This will make any particles that are created over transparent areas of the layer invisible.
