Thanks for the great tutorial. I have a question about the tree animation: you start out keyframing the Emitter particles/sec at a high value, then later set it to zero. When I follow along with this, when the preview hits the zero keyframe, the number of existing leaves shifts dramatically. So the frame before the zero keyframe is a lush full tree, then the next frame, where the zero keyframe is, I lose about half my leaves. This is about six seconds in and particle life is set to 15 seconds. I’m sure the problem is between the chair and the keyboard, but I cannot figure out what I am missing. Any help is greatly appreciated!
