What version of Optical Flares are you using? Have you installed the latest version?
I'm using 1.2.132
I'm fairly sure this is the most recent version.
I'm getting this same problem with Optical Flares. Any resolution?
Make sure that you have the latest version. Earlier versions of Video Copilot Optical Flares had serious crashing issues.
Thank you for the reply. I have the latest version installed. I found this thread:
It seems that certain pro presets are having issues with CS6. Hopefully AK gets this resolved soon and issues an update.
So I have been having the same issue and I think I found a resolution.
Since CS6 automatically chooses whether it should use GPU for OpenGL or not you cannot disable it within the After Effects preview settings. Instead disable it within Optical Flares preferences.
Open your project and put cap locks on. Go into your Effects Controls panel for the layer with Optical Flares (or add Optical Flares to a layer).
Click the Optical Flares options link to open Optical Flares. Choose File from the menu and click on Preferences. Uncheck the box for "Check for GPU render errors" and check the box for "Disable GPU rendering."
