CC Particle World working perfectly a few minutes ago, now seriously misbehaving! Extremely erratic camera behavior.

I'm designing DVD menus and transitions in After Effects.

I'm suddenly running into serious problems with "CC Particle World". My particle emitters were working just fine a few hours ago, but now they're suddenly not moving in sync with my camera pans. Instead they're spazzing out erratically and moving in random directions.

I've uploaded a demonstration of my problem to YouTube. It includes a before-and-after (what it looked like prior to spazzing out, and what it looks like now).






Extra notes about my project/comp status:
  • CAMERA and PARTICLE LAYERS are currently in ONE comp.
  • CAMERA is the only thing being moved. (Y-Pos and Y-PointOfInterest)
  • Composition is 3D ON.
  • PARTICLE LAYERS have 3D OFF, MOTION BLUR ON, and are not parented to anything.


Notes about my AE config:
  • After Effects CC 2014.1.1
  • Multi-Processing is OFF
  • CC Particle World, v1.9.2


System specs, in case they're relevant
  • Alienware 17 (2013) laptop
  • OS: Windows 10 TP 64-bit
  • CPU: Core i7-4900MQ 3.7GHz (4 cores, 8 threads)
  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 780M 4GB
  • 32GB RAM (4x8 1600MHz)
