Some loveley experiments with Trapcode Particular by Andrew Kramer of Video Copilot. Downloadable AE projects included! These are pretty render-heavy.
Download the AE projects here: http://www.videocopilot.net/blog/2013/03/particle-experiments-project/
I really love the fractal noise generator in After Effects, and it works beautifully as a source for displacement maps in Mir. This is almost entirely procedurally generated - no bitmaps or external assets used.
You can download the After Effects project files from digitaldistortion.net if you want to have a play with it.

Harry Franks shows a way to get Trapcode Particular and Element 3D or Cinema 4D to integrate niceley using a Z-Buffer. This is a type of depth-compositing technique and the aim is to achieve automatic obscuration so particles can pass both in front and behind a 3D object – a kind of unified 3D space between the softwares.
Watch the short film TEMPO
Here we'll collect tutorials and other information on TEMPO.
First up is a tutorial on creating beautiful fire using Trapcode Particular and some stock footage:
Next is a tutorial on the 3D bee swarm:
More stuff will be added to this page as it is published.
