Hi, I have a problem when i try to change the view from "Active Camera" to another view such as "top" or "custom view". This problem only happens with particle world and other layers that use a 3D EFFECT. 3D Layers display normally though. Here are some pictures.

Any advice would be really appreciated.

Active Camera:


Top View:


Custom View:



As you can see, the particle world layer preview does not change.

The view changes only affect 3D layers. The layer that you have the effect on is not a 3D layer. This effect is not a 3D effect in the sense that it renders its results in 3D; rather, it is faking the appearance of 3D on a 2D layer as a projection.

Thank You for replying! The thing is that when you use "Particle World" it acts as a 3D layer [it even has the little cube right next to the effect. I´ve seen in several tutorials that they are able to see the particles in different views, like in this tutorial:

here´s a picture of what I´m talking about:
