I’m completely locked in a big project by two bad bugs with static particles (hair particles) driven by an animated texture. The particle system is not refreshed when changing frame, and the Density button of the Map to Panel is no more active in Blender v2.49a.
So far, I have got no response from the Bugtracker. I don’t know if the Bugtracker is only active during Release Candidate periods, or if the developpement of Blender 2.5 has put 2.49 in a shadow area, but if they are not taken in account, these very annoying troubles could be transferred in 2.5, and not solved before 2.5a !
Reported as Bug # 19037.
So, if you can help in any way, please read this thread :
Thanks in advance.
