How do I make a swarm of fireflies with particle effects?

I feel like there has to be a way to set the particle settings so that it looks like a bunch of fireflies as opposed to spontaneously spawning glows from the center of a cloud. Does anyone know how I could accomplish that with particle effects? I suppose I COULD do it with standard animation, but this is a much cleaner way to animate them. Thanks!

It's hard to guess exactly what effect it is you have in mind. Try adjusting this example...

try to spawn your particles on imagepoints inside the cloud

That's what I was looking for! I brought the X and Y randomizer in a bit to make it a bit less crazy, but that's more or less the behavior I wanted. Thanks!
