The Rock animation makes a group of particles rock around its geometric center. The rock movement is done around a vector that goes through the centroid of the group of particles and is collinear with the Z-axis.

Adding the animation#

First, select a group of particles that you want to be rotated.

Then, double-click on the Rock animation effect in the Animation panel of the Animator.

The selected group of particles will perform the rock movement between the two keyframes. Move the keyframes of the animation as needed.


You can always move the keyframes of the animation.


You can change how the parameters are interpolated between the frames by modifying the Easing curve.
