Flocking Birds

Ever since I saw Peder Norrby’s starlings study project file for Particular I wanted to put my own spin on it. I rigged a bird in C4D using Cactus Dan’s Tools a few months back and I thought this would be the perfect time to make a flap cycle and use it as a sprite for Trapcode Particular. So I made three different versions of flap cycles at different angles and plugged them into Particular. It’s a pretty neat effect and Trapcode Particular never ceases to amaze me. So many uses. Thank you Peder!
