Rotate

The Rotate animation makes a group of particles rotate around its geometric center. The rotation 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 around their centroid.

Then, double-click on the Rotate animation effect in the Animation panel of the Animator or click Animation menu > Motion > Rotate.

The selected group of particles will be rotated between the two keyframes. Move the keyframes of the animation as needed.

Note: You can always move the keyframes of the animation.
