Physical Renderer and Python Generator [SOLVED]

    Here's my problem - I have a python generator with a script that creates / animates geometry every frame.  Using the standard renderer this works perfectly - but then I decided I wanted really nice depth of field effects, so I switched to the physical renderer.  The problem here is that it seems to want to execute and initialise the script each frame - rather than just running through the 'main' loop each frame. So it's initialising every frame, making my code not run properly.

    Any ideas for a fix welcome, thanks,

    Hi Glenn,

    can you please try the following:
    Simply add a dynamics tag to any of your objects. You can even disable the dynamics on the tag. Then try, if it changes anything in your render.

    I tried adding a rigid body tag to a dummy scene object, but it didn't make any difference.
    Would I have to add it programmatically to the geometry being created by the script ?

    Anyway, I found a work around by putting IF statements in the root level of the code which only allows it to executed if the current frame is 0.  seems to work..
