I followed a tutorial to make a confetti scene in AE, based mostly on using CC Particle World.

My confetti looks so-so, but it doesn't twirl at all. Each piece of confetti moves downward in a straight line.

What setting do I need to tweak to make the confetti twirl a bit while going down? Thanks!

in the physics settings, try setting the animation type to twirl or twirly.

you might also want to try setting the particle type to quad polygon. this will allow you to make the particles spin freely as the fall -- with motion polygon the particles rotate to follow the direction that they are moving... but that may be a personal preference.
