    I’m attempting to generate steam coming from a cauldron with Trapcode Particular, however, even when following the Red Giant tutorial(s), I get this weird red X when I apply Particular to a layer. I get no preview of what I’m doing, which means I can’t achieve anything. How in the devil do I do this? Please help me!

    The first issue I see is that your Particular layer eyeball is turned off, which means the visibility is off. Try turning that on first. Then report back.

    Typically, I find that this means there is a licensing or registration issue. I would make sure that you have your serial number put into particular, or if you are using RG Application Manager verify that it is activated there. RG is also changing their login process through Maxon, so it could be attributed to that as well.

    Best of luck!
