    I have tried to change the position of the first particle in the Emitter with

    tag = Emitter Object->GetFirstTag();
    movePosition = tag->GetData();
    movePosition[0] = vector(0,250,0);
    tag->SetData(movePositon);
    tag->Message(MSG_UPDATE);

    it works in the ViewPort Render but not the Picture Viewer

    Please Help

    I think you can be helped by this Thread

    Basicaly you need to search a specific tag, not only the first.
    When rendering Cinema render a copy of the document and there are hidden tags that can be infront of you tag.

    Cheers

    As Lennart mentions, the Polygon and Point tags are hidden tags that always exist on Polygon/Point objects. Other tags may be hidden as well (Claude Bonet weight tags, plugin tags, etc.) Never assume that your tag is first! ...deceptive isn't it...

    Best to do a loop:

    for (tag = obj- >GetFirstTag(); tag; tag = tag->GetNext())
    {
         if (tag->GetType() == type) continue;
         // This tag is of type, do something
         ...
         break;
    }

    This can be used, of course, to consider ALL tags of a particular type by removing the break line.

    And that should be if (tag->GetType != type) continue; - duh
