My fx from last night doesn’t really look anything like the effect from flower, above, so I decided to redo it.
I started off with a ribbon data emitter. My concern was getting it to go around the tree as it won’t work with an orbit, but using a cylinder locator worked. This was totally by accident – I was just trying to get it in the right position and it started doing the movement I wanted – perfect!
I added colour to make it the same as the orbs on the tree.
