    Rotate Trapcode particular (Sprinkler Effect)


      Hi Everyone,


      I am currently working on a holding screen animation and I am using the most recent version of RG Trapcode Particular in After Effects.


      I have been able to make a bi-directional emitter that emits at the desired rate but I would like to vary the direction of emittance to create what is best described as a sprinkler effect. I feel that this may have something to do with the Y rotation- but no idea how to make this variable.


      See a diagram here.


      When I rotate the entire effect via keyframes the whole effect is rotated. I need the particles to keep moving along their set path determined at the point of emittance.


      Any help is much appreciated.


      Many thanks,
