In this tutorial we cover the technique I developed in Xpresso to lock particles to one axis or another, but only one per particle. This isn't a new technique, it's not original either. I have no idea where I had seen it before but I know there are others that have done it.
Check out how Simon Fiedler does his version of this effect: vimeo.com/52803528#at=0 (it's really cool!)
This is my approach. I hope it helps you.
