Changing the effect quality from the console window causes Niagara systems to reset their visibility.


Tested in 4.22.3(CL - 7053647), 4.23 (CL - 8386587), 4.24 (CL - 9023396)

Steps to Reproduce
  1. In a blank project, create a Niagara emitter based on any template
  2. Create a Niagara system based on said emitter
  3. Drag the Niagara system to the scene
  4. In the Details Panel of the Niagara system, turn off the Auto Activate flag
  5. Open the console window type the following: sg.EffectsQuality 1

Expected: The effects quality changes, but the Niagara system remains disabled

Result: The Niagara re-enables itself despite the flag still being off
