Viewing Animated Emitter Curves in the Keyframe Editor

When you animate an emitter or cell parameter using keyframes, a curve describing that
animation appears in the Keyframe Editor. The selected object determines which curves
appear in the Keyframe Editor (when Animated is selected from the pop-up menu in the
top-left corner of the Keyframe Editor):

• Select the emitter to display animated emitter parameters such as Position and Rotation

(in the Properties Inspector) or Emission Angle and Range (in the Emitter Inspector).

• Select the cell to display animated parameters such as Birth Rate or Angle (in the Particle

Cell Inspector).
