What version of After Effects?
Does this happen with all footage or just specific footage?
Has this ever worked for you before?
It is verson CS6. It happens with any footage. Its the first time I've used the filter.
What exact version of CS6 are you using? 11.0.0? 11.0.1? 11.0.2? 11.0.3?
When you say it "goes black" do you mean the whole comp is completely black or does it just get mostly black with some color in spots?
