The Beam Emitter does not use local space, and you cannot check “Use Local Space“ in Required module.

Found in 4.19 CL# 4033788, 4.20 Preview 5 CL# 4173640, 4.21 CL# 4199311

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open the attached project
  2. Open the particle and enable "Lock Source" and "Lock Target" in the source and target modules
  3. Select the required module and try to enable "Local Space"
  4. Simulate in editor
  5. Open the particle again and disable "Lock Source"
  6. Simulate in editor

The particle system rotates around a center. All particles should rotate with the particle component, but they stay where they where emitted, and you cannot check “Use Local Space“ in the Required module.

You should be able to check “Use Local Space” and all particles’ locations should be relative to the particle system component.
