Emitters not working
on Aug 30, 2010 at 10:19:09 pm

I'm stuck... I purchased the upgrade to Mac AE, but can't seem to get it activated... it's showing up, at least the preview window is, in AE as a trial version... however, nothing happens when I apply an emitter to the footage... is that because it's a trial version? I apply the affect as instructed and... nothing. The footage remains unaffected... am I supposed to use the "add" transfer mode or something I'm missing... should the effect be applied to a solid layer?

In trial mode you should see particles. When the trial period is up, you'll see particles with a red X. Are you seeing the red X, or nothing?

Try turning "Fast Previews" to a setting that doesn't use OpenGL and see if that makes a difference.

Try it on a solid too. It should work on footage, but maybe something weird is going on.
