Particular - Custom particle layer flickering??
on Aug 3, 2005 at 6:24:03 am

Using a custom layer as a particle.
For the most part all the particles flow smooth, but randomly on the screen some of the instances of the custom particle will flicker on and then disappear, regardless of how high in seconds I set the particle life, and regardless of what time sampling option I choose.

The custom particle I built has a proper loop (with identicle first and last keyframes), so it can't be grabbing from a bad frame.

I'm confused.

make sure custom layer starts at the same frame as particle layer.
first frame should not equal last in a perfect loop - then it would be displayed twice in a row!

ok i changed the loop so the last frame is set one movement before the first frame (therefore creating a perfect loop).

Both particular and custom layer start at the first frame of 0;00.

The only difference is that the custom layer is 5 secs long and the particular layer is 15sec, but I don't think that should matter.

Even still after altering the layers per your recommendations, I still get a single particle that flashes on for a single frame and then off again.

What i have is a custom animation layer (pre-composed) of a leaf falling.
Most of the leaves fall fine and flow perfectly, but during ram preview, there will be a leaf here and there that quickly flashes on and then off...totally ruining the animation.

Hi There,

I've got exactly the same problem!
Including a leaf comp from 5 seconds haha!

But still got the flickering..

Is there a solution to solve this?

Thanks
Jurjen
