Is there a way to move the pivot point of a line emitter?
I would like it to pivot on one end rather than from the center.

Thank you,
Bill

Just move the points that define the line.

Thank you Allen,

To get point 2 to revolve around point 1 I would start with point 2 at 0 degrees relevent to point 1 advance few frames set point 2 at 90 degrees to point 1 advance a few frame set point 2 at 180 degres to point one etc., till I get a 360 degree rotation?

Is this correct?

Thank you,
Bill

If you move point 1 over the reference point (the smaller point that appears between the two points when you create a line emitter), you can use the Angle graph to rotate point 2 around point 1.

Thank you, Elves I will give that a try. :-)
