Question Moving / Rotating Particle Emitter, Not Entire System?

Hello,

I was wondering if it is possible to transform the emitter of a particle system instead of the entire particle object tied to a <node3d> object.

I am using an OSG particle system created in OSG Scene Editor.

Right now if I use viz.link or a vizact to move the <node3d> with the particles, the entire system rotates.

Is there a way to move the emitter so that the particles trail behind?
For instance, I am making a fire hose that shoots water and I'd like those particles already emitted to not instantly move as the player moves.


Thank you,
George

Have you tried applying the particle hint?
Code:
node.hint(viz.PARTICLE_HINT)
