Bakes particle flow particles into meshes and/or helpers.

NOTE: This script bakes only the viewport particles, so in order to get the amout of particles set in your system, set the viewport count to 100%.

Hi,  Thanks for reporting

Hi,

 Thanks for reporting this. Unfortunately, I don't have 64bit version so I can't check this, and it seems to work fine on 32bit.

Does anyone else have this issue with the 64bit version? Does anyone with 64bit version have a solution for this?

 

Thanks,
