    I have a photo of a face and I want to have a small object move in and when it touches the face, the face explodes into a bunch of particles that swirl and fly away.
    I get a sort of kalaedoscopic effect when I just use make particle option on the face, but I want the image to break up into particles and explode away.
    Can anyone please advise on how to approach this?
    Thanks a lot.

    There's a Plug-in for Final Cut Pro by Boinx Software called Shatter 3D that does it easier than the After Effects Shatter effect. Don't know of anything for iMovie if that's what you're using.
