Alex ScottCC Particle World - Change Producer Orientation

Hey there,

Ok - CC Particle world has all these great Vortexes and Fire and everything, but they all just point straight up! What if I want to have someone making a magic portal (a vortex on it's side) or use the fire in the flame of a Jet engine. Obviously I can adjust the gravity to make them go 'down' instead of 'up' - but what if I want to have the jet, say - 45deg to the horizontal? What then?

I know I can change to producer type to 'direction axis' - but A) then I lose the advanced animation from 'fire' etc and B) it will only be horizontal, swiveling around the Y axis. I can't make it angle up or down at all.

The ability to adjust the angle on the particle producer seems such a basic requirement that I assume there is something very large an obvious that I am missing here.

Please help. It's driving me nuts.
