Reversing BCC 2D PARTICLES

I’m trying to do a particle effect in Avid Media Composer with BCC applied to some on-screen and it looks great using BCC 2D PARTICLES, but I need to REVERSE it and can’t figure out how.

This should evoke the old “transporter” effect as seen on the original Star Trek: Animated particles eventually come together and reveal the word “TREKFEST”

I have it going the other way (the word devolves into particles). How can I reverse it?

Hi Harvey,

There’s a pop-up at the top of the filter labelled Automate - it’s default setting is Forward but if you set that to reverse you should see the effect you have in mind. Please let me know if this does the trick for you. I also recall that someone once created a detailed how-to video for this look - I’ll poke around to see if I can find it and if so I’ll post a link here.

Cheers,
Peter.
