Dragging a paint layer (a circle outline) into the production boundary of the particles system, I can see emerge particles only on the upper half of the circle: someone can tell me were is my mistake?

Hi,

What happens as you drag through the timeline ... do more particles appear?

Please feel free to send me the RED settings project (without media) and I'll take a look at it. You can send that to me at peterm@borisfx.com.

Thanks,

Peter.

Hi Eddo,

I've responded to you privately about this but so that we can help others in the Creative Cow community who may encounter this issue, here's a description of the problem and the solution:

• Problem:
a paint layer, used as a production foundry layer in the particle system filter within RED was unexpectedly being clipped horizontally and did not span the full size of the comp

Solution:
• the paint filter needed to have a media track in order to work as a Production Boundary layer
• first create a new layer / track, then nest the paint track onto the face of this layer. Then use the new layer as the Production Boundary.

Cheers,

Peter.
