I've got a scene w/7 emmiters in it... I'm haveing all kinds of problems.
First: The birth rate seems to keep changing. If I hit the Fixed Random button it seems to reset them.
Second: Everytime I adjust something my target item gets cleared and I have to reset it.
Third: They keep randomley turning on and off. Let's say 1,2,3,5,7 are working, so I'll turn the random on/off and the the missing ones will work but others will turn off.

Do you have to calculate each emitter? or do you just do it once for all?
Does it make a difference if you use the "calculat" button on the properties panel or the "start" button on FX Browser?

I've tried saveing them but it seems that it doesn't save what I'm seeing on screen. Do you have to calculat them then save?
Any help would be great.

Thanks man, it's actually calculating right now... I used the FXBrowser "start" button for the calc. I think I'm heading out... it looks like this is going to take a few hrs.
How's the show/work going?
