Trapcode Particular Crash when pasting Problem/Workaround
on Oct 9, 2009 at 5:06:25 pm

This is part problem, part workaround:

Problem: Trapcode Particular (v2 and v1) crashes AE when I try to paste an existing Particular effect to a new solid.

Workaround: Create a new default instance of Particular in the new solid, then paste the desired Particular setup onto the default instance of the effect. (Make sure to have your timeline on the correct start frame if you have keyframes that are being transferred as well. Keyframes not transferring? Try copying the effect from your effect pallet, not the timeline. It should copy all your keyframes as well.)

Anyone have this issue as well, and found a better solution?

Thanks,
Greg

You could always create an effects favorite, which will retain all settings and keyframes. Then you wouldn't have to do all that copying & pasting.

This Is alikely an error in particular 2 , have you downloaded the recent updates? They allegedly fix these problems, It worked in my case...

http://www.redgiantsoftware.com/products/all/trapcode-particular/updates/

* In After Effects CS5, if the particle life for the main particle was set to 0, After Effects would shut down.
* In After Effects CS5, CS4, and CS3, if you were using a custom particle with loop time sampling for the texture, and attempted to copy and paste either the layer with Particular applied or the instance of Particular, After Effects would shut down.
* If particles were emitted in a dense grid so they barely overlapped at the edges and were not animated, there were Moire patterns if the camera was rotated around the particles. This has been fixed in After Effects CS5, CS4, and CS3.
