    Is it every emitter or just a specific one?

    Try the new Particle Illusion standalone app from BorisFX.

    I found this info under my pi3.0.4 program. Hopefully this helps.

    When particleIllusion won’t start (or crashes at startup):

    1) Try the “reset default settings” in the Start – Programs – particleIllusion 3.0 – troubleshooting menu.

    If that doesn’t work:

    2) Try “run with software rendering” in the Start – Programs – particleIllusion 3.0 – troubleshooting menu.

    If that doesn’t work either,

    3) Restart your computer. (You’d be amazed how many times this fixes “strange” problems.)

    If software rendering does work, then you need to get updated video drivers from your video card manufacturer’s website.

    Thanks,

    Francois

    Try this older thread to see if the problem is with the Emitter. https://creativecow.net/forums/thread/pi-3043-crashing/

    Hopefully you have a backup of this located under your library_backups folder of the pi3 install.
