In this tutorial I will go over my workflow to create a particle trail animation using Plexus with Cinema 4D and After Effects. I will first show you how I setup the scene in C4D and then export all the 3D data into AE, where you can apply Plexus and other effects such as Trapcode Particular and Optical Flares. As usual, I will try to throw in as many tips and techniques that I use in my work for you, and hopefully you will be able to enjoy this and take away something useful.
