Hi, i'm on after effect cs3 on a mac 2x2.26 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon. I've done a project in AE and when i try to generate particles with CC particle world (that was installed when i installed the software) AE crashes. We have a second computer in the studio with AE as well but on this one CC particle world works fine. Would you know what could be the problem. By the way i went on the Cycore system FX web site to see if there was an update, there was one but it replaced my CC particle world with a new one but one that i need to buy a key to activate (when the original one was supposed to work with AE on original install) We have different CS3 packs for every computers. Thank you.

This is a known issue with CS3 on Nehalem Xeon MacPros. Except for buying the HD version of the Cycore effects or turning off hyperthreading as described on my pages (no guarantees, I only got this info from someone else), there is no fix for CS3. However, these issues have been addressed in the CS4 9.0.1 update, so consider upgrading to CS4.
