it was this thread, about something i had in my demo:

for more realism, i would defocus the background while the butterflies are in the foreground, or vice versa. Also, some motion blur on the movement if you can.

And before Peter Jefferson says it, u can use Particle Illusion too and have a butterfly as an emitter :)

Somehow I just never could make the connection between butterflies and marriage.
