Help blender is adding keyframes automatically!!!

Hi Guys

having a serious problem in the middle of a large project.

I’m creating a static image and blender is adding keyframe data every time I move something.

This is causing duplicated objects to “snap” back to their “original” position every time i try to render.

I think i may have turned something on by mistake but have no idea what it is.

thanks for any help.

cheers

found the problem, a little red button that looks like an old style record button, on the timeline window

ha only costs me 4 hours of lost work…
