There is a marker to indicate the origin of the effect on the canvas. Move frame by frame along the time line and drag the origin to where you need it on the canvas. Key frames for the origin position are automatically generated when you do this.

This is with a muzzle flash although you can do the same thing with other effects.

"Flash Attributes" if it you are using the muzzle flash engine; "Optic Movement" if you are using the optics engine; and "Emitter Attributes" if you are using the particle engine.

Good screen shot Harvey.

To drag the emitter point you just click with your mouse.

I would also recommend reading the manuals. They are not hard going, are well written and will answer many of the questions you will probably have.
