I want to make text disappear as snow falls on top of the text using an alpha layer--but I'm not able to do this. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

You might want to consider using some type of particle effect rather than CC Snow.

Thanks. I've been trying to use Particle Playground but it so RAM heavy I'm not really able to scroll through to see what I have without getting an error message stating I don't have enough memory. I have plenty of disk space and I have the preview button set at "THIRD" so i can move a little faster. But still I run into the same problem when I try to switch any of the settings. Other than that I think if I could get it to work your suggestions for using PP instead of CCSnow looks like it will work for what I'm doing. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Also I'm creating the layer from a solid--basic text--so there's nothing but the text and the effect.
