I have a model that I want to render with subd levels set to 5 (Simple Skin shows subtle lines of lighter color along the subd lines at the usual default of 3, but that's for another discussion!).
Anyway, I set the render subd for the object to 5, add Fiber FX, and Edit Guides. When I proceed to render I get an error panel "For FFx, subd levels must be the same as when guide edits were created!" Well, they *were*! What's more maddening is that Layout silently changes the subd level of the object back to 3!
I've tried a few tricks including setting the default Layout render subd to 5 in LW9.cfg, but I still get this error.
I haven't seen this in other threads, so no one else has seen this?
Thanks for any help.

If the sudb viewing level was 3, that is what it will change your render sudb too aswell. Simply clone the object, and make the original hidden to the camera. Take the new clone an up the Subd level to 5 and you'll be fine..
