    Can't see particles in Particle Playground

    Solomon Gumby

      I'm unable to see particles being created by the Particle Playground effect. I can apply the CC particle effects with no problem, but when I try it with Particle Playground I just get a black screen. The info window counts the particles and the timeline drags like it's trying to render, but nothing is visible. I've tried the Cannon, the Grid and the exploders. I've tried resetting the multiprocessing preferences. I've even reinstalled After Effects and run all updates, but no dice.

       

      Any ideas?

       

      Here are the specs

       

      Adobe CS5

      Mac OSX 10.5.8

      Mac Pro

      2 x 2.26 GHz Quad Core Intel Xeon processors

      16 GB 1066 MHz DDR3 RAM
