Hi all.

Feel free to berate me as the answer is probably right in front of my nose;

I have a sprite particle in Particular with a small Z rotation on it so it slowly rotates. Positive = clockwise, negative = anti/counter clockwise.

I'm sure that in the past I have managed to have half the particles rotate CW and half CCW but I can't for the life of me work out how to do it now.

Thanks in advance!

You have a property called random Z rotation (or something like that). Thats what you should change (Its totally counterintuitive, I know)

I got really pissed when I discovered that Stardust has that same hindrance... I had to duplicate the emitter just so I could get particles to spin the other way.

Thats one way to do it too with particular if you want the exactly same rotation value (and not a random one), just CW and CCW. Duplicate the effect with properties, and change the rotation value and the seed number.
