Looping an expression based particle system in After Effects

Following some discussion on VJforums.com on how to seamlessly loop a particle system based on a random/wiggle expression, this is an example AE project file of how you could go about it. Based on the technique for looping wiggle by Dan Ebberts, and the technique for looping a particle system, documented by Aharon Rabinowitz, among others.

Download the commented project here, and if you want, you can see and download a 1080p seamless loop based on this technique from VJvault.com here.

Hope it’s useful to someone!
