View Full Version : Cancel calculating particles

Is there no way to cancel particles from being calculated? I've entered some values that are taking a trillion years to calculate and want to cancel but it seems stuck calculating.

For some unknown reason you should hit CTRL to cancel any and all FX calculations in LW. Be aware though that it might take a few seconds before you regain control because it's probably only able to break the calculation once it has finished calculating the current frame and before starting on the next... so if you've put in some REALLY wild numbers try to be extra-patient. :)

Ah yep, that did it. Thanks. I was trying the usual cancel keys like ESC but nothing. Kind of an odd one but it works.

Isn't that a weird choice for Newtek to make? Why not Escape, I wonder. Also, why is it ctrl-shift-left mouse button to copy and paste in the graph editor? It took me a month to figure that out. Quirks, I guess.
