I have apparently accidentally recorded some editing I made to my project. I know I sometimes inadvertently hit the space bar while doing some editing to my scene. Until now, I was unaware that it could cause problems later on. Now, I have this Oktoberfest scene I'm working on that involves some mugs of beer. I have made some particles emitters to generate bubbles in the liquid. It worked fine when I was only animating one beer mug sitting on the 'floor'. But then I added a character (imported from DAZ), made many copies of the mug and experimented with positioning the character and the mugs.
THE PROBLEM occurred when I decided to hit the space bar to start the animation and generate some bubbles for a preliminary render before tweaking the lights and textures.
There were bubbles all over the place and objects appearing and disappearing, being moved randomly.
I tried to edit the animation but there is nothing to be seen there, no keyframes, no 'action' that I can select or delete.
Is there a way to 'reset' the animation completely or save the blend file without the animation data?
I can redo all the particle systems to correct what's going wrong, but that wouldn't solve the randomly moving props.
Here are just a few frames to illustrate the problem.First frame with particle emitters selected
