Hello creative people.
I have created a particle trail ( with particular) that follows a null object . I've made the null object move in an eliptical fashion... sort of... using this expression:

r=thisComp.layer("Null 1").effect("Radius")("Slider") // radius;
u=time*200 // angle;

The problem is that I dont know how to tilt it, using a degrees system or whtaever could be used in this case , something like this:

. Any input would be more than apreciated.


PS: I'm using After Effects CS4

try making the particle system layer 3d (and ignore the warning message), then rotate the layer as needed.

Thank you for answering so quickly, as you can see I'm a noob. I will try that and post the results here. Again thank you for taking your time to answer this thread :-)

You can also check out this conversation over at VideoCopilot. Someone there seems to have a similar issue and several solutions were suggested.
