View Full Version : Particle FX PlayBack Mode: CRASH

08-12-2004, 07:15 AM
Hi all,
I have a problem with Lightwave 7.

If I load a .pfx file quite big (about 10MB) as motion for a null particle emmitter and I play it in normal mode, I don't have any problem.

But I have to use the same particle motion in another scene, in which the emitter is not static, but it moves. So I set the "playback mode" in the FX_Emitter File Tab to key, but Layout Crashes.

The problem does not occour if the .pfx file is small.

Do you know how can I fix this problem?

Thank You

How much memory in your system? You said small worked fine so it could be memory related. Other than that - not sure.
