Hello all. I got a chance to get back to my update issue and figured out it was actually quite simple.
For ref, I was testing with the early access tut that Ash created. https://vimeo.com/264444830
The issue is that I had the playback of the emitter running. So, when I adjusted the slider values the playback was jumping back to the beginning and starting over again. If I turn off playback the update is real time just as demonstrated in Ash’s videos.
This happened only with the dragable inputs like DistributeX, NumInstance, etc. But it happens with all of them, and probably is doing just what it is supposed to eh?
The curve sample to adjust Z pos works fine in realtime with playback running or not.
ShaunK : I did start out by checking the log and there was no large amount of info happening. It was actually very minimal.
Clearly this is just a “learning curve moment”
