Animating emitters

I'm trying to animate about 30 emitters. Is there a way i can keyframe (for example: density value) all of the emitters when i select them all?

Or do I have to do it one by one?

The easiest way is to key attributes in the channel box. As long as the objects are the same, you should have no problem keying them this way. Just right click on the attributes you want to key and click "key selected".
You can also used the key menu in the attribute spread sheet.
Between those two options, you should be all set for most basic mass keying.
Happy keying.

Ya your right, thank you.

It works in the channel box/layer editor.

But when I tried to keyframe in the attribute editor, it doesn't work.

Thanks.
