# Help on how to create a hologram with particles

I'm working on a hologram and want particles to flow from the hologram source to the hologram and then fade out.

I have tried lots of things and watched all tutorials I could find but I can not make it work. The closest I seen a tutorial on was to use the harmonious forcefield to gather the particles from Susan to the point where the hologram source was. 2 problems with that. First is that I did as they did in the tutorial but I could not make it work. The froce field did not affect the particles. Second is that the particles flows the wrong way like that. From the hologram to the sorce and not as it should be from the source to the hologram.

I appreciate if someone could help me with how to set this up.

Almost like this.

In this tutorial the particles flow from the circle below up to Susan. Thats good. But the particles flows from the whole surface and straight up. I want the particles to go from one small point and spread out up to the hologram and that way create the lightcone in this picture.

The guy who made this used several lightsourses to make the lightcone make the ambiance of the image but I need to avoid lights for this project.

The closest I come trying to figure this out is to use the harmonic force field to drag the particles into a cone. I seen it done before but I can not make that happen. The forcefield do not attract the particles.

• If you want one flow of particles that go up to create the hologram, you can dissolve the object like here and then reverse the rendered animation in the final video edit. A force field of type force with a negative strength will pull the particles to it. You may want to look into keyed particles, like this answer or this one. Jun 24, 2018 at 8:32
