After Effect error: Particular cannot work on a time-reversed layer
on Sep 20, 2015 at 9:31:42 pm

Hi,

I'm using trapcode particular on my After Effects CC 2015, but when I applied Time-reversed Layer, I received this message. "After Effect error: Particular cannot work on a time-reversed layer"
I tried pre-compose. I also tried render, but nothing are working. If someone can help me it would be great!

Instead of using AE CC 2015, try AE CC 2014 instead. If you don't have it right now don't worry -- you have access to it and csn get it.

Hi, thanks for answer me back.
I also tried in After Effect CS4 and CS6.
Both of them keep the same error.
I've tried a lot, I have no ideia what's happening.

Is there another way to do that?
I'm learning AE.

I take that to mean that Particular doesn't work on a time-reversed layer for a reason. The likely reason being that Particular has a built-in Physics Time Factor that you can use to speed up or slow or reverse time.

Apply Particular, but DO NOT time-reverse the layer.

Nest the comp with Particular in another comp, and use Time Remapping to reverse it.

You'd do that if you wanted both Particular and the footage to go backwards.

If you want the layer to go backwards, but Particular to go forwards. Precomp the footage, time-reverse it in the precomp, then apply Particular to the precomp.

I still get the error message when I precompose Particular and do time-remapping (using the latest version of CC).

I found the only way to get it to work is to go into the advanced comp settings (of your Particular comp) and check the 'preserve frame rate when nested' box.

Life saver! thank you so much. Clicking that box in advanced COMP settings allows particular to be time reversed!!! Thanks
