Hey all

I am sure I know this one, but I just can't work it out!

I have created a textured layer and I would like to use particular to send that 'particle' along a straight line from left to right.

So I create the Emitter position off screen and then I can randomly emit particles along the line so they go off screen.

Is this doable?

Thanks so much

Very doable, just set the emitter to "Directional" and set up the direction so that it points in the direction you want the particles to travel.
