Do you have to do it with HV? An option is to create the particle effect you are after using an Emitter and then you can replace particles with a custom object. So model yourself a simple bubble and surface it correctly and then use that as your particle replace object. There should be a function that allows you to randomize the size of the object per particle.

Otherwise if you have to do it with HV, I'm not quite sure how to do it. There must be some option in the blending mode or the blending group that stops the HV's interacting.

Good luck.

I had this problem recently, and found no easy solution, this would be and should be very easy for Newtek to add.

The only solution I found was to put each point on seperate layers, but this is very tedious and time consuming.

Theres a couple of things you can do.
Create a null and apply HVs to it. FX Link that to an emitter.
Another option was mentioned by Scott :)
