I am trying to set up a simulation in AE where arrows bounce off an object...

I am using particle playground and everything works fine... the arrows bounce off the wall I set up, but the arrows do not change direction... in other words I want the arrows ( the particles) to orient along path.

I am hoping I do not have to re-create this in another plug in, but if I do, I have particular 1.0

thanks

Did you set Rotation to Auto-Orient Rotation?

Oops. My bad. Sorry to get your hopes up.

I can't find it either. I was going by some crusty old documentation that apparently needs to be updated. I had better get to that.

Particle Playground's Auto-orient feature is found in the Effects Control Panel. Click on Options and you'll find a Checkbox for Auto-Orient.

Thanks, Roland. I just added that tidbit to the Help section on Particle Playground; this change will appear the next time that I publish a revised version of the Help document (which I do about once per month).

Guess I'd better click "options" more often ... I tend to ignore it. Bad Steve!

Thanks, Roland.
