Christmas is coming , the inevitable animations are requested, and my
seasonal cheer is being destroyed by mysteriously vanishing particles.
It's a 3D project, with snowflakes falling (created drawing a circle-
make particles->behavior/gravity etc)
There are various things going on - the camera and some objects being
animated as well, and everything works fine EXCEPT the odd frame
where all of the snowflakes vanish completely and reappear on the
next frame. If I choose a new random seed then the problem will
vanish from where it is and reappear somewhere else.
I've tried this both on a Powermac G5 dual 2.7Ghz 8gig RAM and my
Macbook Pro Core Duo (2.16Ghz/2gig).
I haven't run across this issue, but if you want to, send me the motion project and I'll load it up on my macbook, which is running Leopard, and we can see if that covers it. Kev at hammonwry dot com is my email.
