Looking for help on a picture effect

Hi, I’m looking for someone experienced with Particle Illusion who can help me with an effect. I’d like to take a painting and have it appear to particalize. We would swirl/zoom through the particles into a single remaining particle.

Anyone up to help? I can pay for the help.

Thank!

You want to “zoom” into the particles after they’re created? You can sample a source layer’s colors with the plugin version of PI, but there’s no way to distribute them in 3D space.

You might have more luck achieving that result using the BCC Image Shatter, BCC Scatterize, BCC Pin Art or BCC Layer Deformer effects.
