    Rotate Trapcode particular (Sprinkler Effect)

    moniquer79784142

      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,

       

      Monique
