View Full Version : MEL created particles disappearing?

02 February 2008, 09:48 PM
I'm creating a particle system using mel (relevant snippet):

string $partName[] = `particle`;
emit -o $partName[0] -pos $randPt[0] $randPt[1] $randPt[2];

It works fine, displays in the scene fine, etc, until I scrub the animation. Once it scrubs back to frame 1, all the particles disappear, never to be seen again.

Why is this happening?

Nevermind...just had to saveInitialState on the particle system and it all works.
