Freeze particle animation


I have a particle system just to position some objects randomly.
The objects belong to a group.
If I hit Alt-A the particle system starts to animate.
Now I want to freeze the position of all objects at a certain frame.
So next time I hit Alt-A none of the objects should move anymore, they should have fixed position all over the animation time.

How can I do that? Thanks for any hint!

Go to the frame you want and make the duplicates real.

Hi AlanK,

thanks, OK but how do I make the duplicates real?

Ctl-Shift-A or press the spacebar and type make and then choose make duplicates real.
