Hi guys,

I'm trying to get the particle effect 'Misty Fog' to blow from left to right instead of right to left but I just can't make it happen!! Any clues please??

Well, I'm not looking at the preset right now, but I would guess that you'll need to

1: Move the emitter from the right side of the frame to the left.

2. Move the emitter control wheel so the particles emit the opposite direction.

3. Check the gravity controls to make sure they aren't pulling the particles the wrong way.

It may also be worth looking to see if there are any keyframes set before the effect starts (farther left on the timeline), that might be throwing things off.

Ahh, I think the gravity controls are what's throwing it off... nice one, cheers!
