Atomic particles fractal layer map help
I have been following a tutorial from Majahr pictures which shows how to make text transform using atomic particles. The tutorial shows a gradient map being used to sweep across the frame and applied to the fractal layer of the texts atomic particles effect, causing the text to disperse as the gradient changes from black to white, with time.
I have not been able to replicate this effect. I am using hitfilm 3 pro and I guess the tutorial was for hitfilm 2, so the Layer property is slightly different, with some extra properties (which don't seem to be covered in the hitfilm manual), however I can't seem to get the particles to change with time whichever properties I change. Can anyone let me know how the fractal layer map works? Thanks.
