This is much the same as my cumulus clouds PRJ but the emitter rate is animated on and off in the chor.

Free tuts

I have hours and hours of organized free Video tutorials on Data DVD. Because Storage and bandwidth are an issue its difficult to give these for free as they not only cost me money I can not pay for delivery and the time it takes to burn them for you. I will send you all the free organized video tutorials regarding AM I have. The link below will help you get the ball rolling.

Great stuff, Robert! Did you animate the Rocket and string by hand or is that a dynamic constraint at work? Either way, it's a wonderful clip!

Thanks, everyone!

Animated by hand. The rocket body is wobbling around its approximate center of gravity. The string is a two-point spline with one end attached at the surface of the rocket body. This gives the impression that the string is being jiggled by the rocket's mass. At first, you'd think the rocket should move around the point where the string attaches, but a rocket has much more mass than a string so it tries to turn about its own center
