Element 3d Replicator and anchor point.

Hi, I have looked for this answer so I hope I have not missed it.
In Element 3d I am trying to move the anchor point on this replicator stack. Moving the Z value only works from the centre of the stack, I need it on the left hand end.
I have tried the associated element 3d nulls. I presume I use 3d Grid option. I want the shapes to be travelling down a tunnel.
Many thanks

I suspect you have to adjust the z position of the replicator at the same time as the z scale of the shape to get the effect you're after.

I think I have it.
Replicator shape: Plane
Particle count; eg 20
Particle Replicator Scale xyz... y0-20
and or shape options Layers Offset eg 1-10. These last two seem to work much the same but there needs to be a value of some sort in layers offset

Funny, I can't figure out how you make that combination work. Meanwhile the z-offset works for me.

you can move your anchor point inside the element 3d comp...set it way to the right so that when you do the particle replicator it more or less lines up where you want the center to be

Thanks. Moving the anchor point, if using 3d grid still expands the shapes from the middle it seems. I cna certainly work with what we have here. many thanks
