My friend asks me for help about aligning thousands of particles to an outline of an SVG.

Tell me, what do I have to do?

What he wants to achieve:

How it would go:

As my friend said: "These are when the stars would stay in place in random seed, so the outline of the logo would form."

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to Stackexchange Jeremy. This is not a "we do all the work for you "-platform, but a "we help you with what you tried so far"-platform. So just show us what you tried. Sorry- show us what your "friend" tried. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Hello, Chris! Well to be exact, my friend didn't fail and he just doesn't know how to make it. That's all I know. $\endgroup$ Apr 13, 2021 at 15:06

Does dots should appear in place (plus to add animated Camera movement backward to zoom-out) ...

enter image description here Example is SVG converted to Mesh (only outline), Extruded a bit to get side faces and added Particle System Emitted from Faces, Physics > None ...

... or dots should fly from behind camera to front?

No problem to extend answer or redirect you to somewhere for more details, when will be clear the particles motion.
