    Do you have an example of what your looking to do? A simple explosion, or breaking apart in flight? How detailed or not?

    Use a Motion tracker to map the movement of the jet. Apply that to a match move in the Emitter. Or keyframe the Position parameters of the Emitter manually.

    Re: Motion Tracking
    You guys need to do an advanced motion tracking video series. How to track motion so that it is clean. How to track motion and apply it if an object moves off the screen in the shot and then comes back in later in the same shot. How to apply the effects to your motion map etc... I think a lot of people want to use Motion to create these kind of tracked effects and blend them into their shots.

    Re: Motion Tracking
    That's a good suggestion. Have you gone through the Motion Tracking section of the user manual? [url]http://help.apple.com/motion/mac/5.0/en/motion/usermanual/#chapter=22%26section=1[/url]
