The Rotation group rotates the particles on any axis. You can give the particles a random rotation so they rotate in different directions, and orient the particles in very specific ways.
Rotate X, Y, Z: Rotates the particles around the X, Y and Z axes. These parameters are mostly for the Textured Polygon particle type.
Left to right, Rotate X at -50 and 100.
Random Rotation: Adds randomness to the Rotation setting. Surprise! More specifically, this parameter rotates the particle around a random axis. Useful for getting a more natural looking effect where all particles have unique orientation in space.
Rotation Speed X, Y, Z: You can set the particles' Rotation Speed separately on each axis.
Random Speed Rotate: Makes the particles rotate at random speeds. Some particles will rotate fast, some slower, which is very useful in giving a natural appearance for the animation.
Random Speed Distribution: Enables fine-tuning of the randomized speed of Rotation Speed. The default value of 0.5 is the normal Gaussian distribution. Setting the value to 1 will give a flat, even distribution.
