i am using motion path + airfield for an animation,
and i just saw the preview of dynamics is not the same
each time i play the animation.

how i can have a preview of dynamics???
and be sure to have same effect in render at the end????

(G5 dual 2.5Ghz, 2.5gb ram is little to slow for an interactive play.)
(and there is nothing in maya help about this problem...,they just speak about simplify effects in dynamics to have interactive preview, but it's not a solution)

thanks again for any help. i am in a big troubles.

You can bake your simulation.

You have to do some reading though to understand what baking is. Basicly it is converting you simulation into keyframes and thus locking down your animation.

Check maya help -> "bake"

For a quick tryout chose your geometry in question and goto edit->keys->bake simulation

Save your project under a new name when trying this that way you can revert to your original animation if anything goes wrong.
