I'm not sure why but after reloading a recent scene, the particle FX interface is greyed out, uneditable. Does anyone know how/why this happend? I've used particles w/HyperVoxels several times before and haven't run into this problem.
I have a few emitters set up and 2 work fine, one doesn't.
I', useing LW7.5
Thanks.

PFX panel controls are grayed out when you have saved the particles' motion (aka "baked" motion). Did you perhaps "bake" that emitter's particles ?

I did save the motion because I will need to screamer render the scene when done. Can it be edited after saveing?

It can be edited but then you have to resave again. I think there is a little check box or something where you save you particles motion file.
