Using the single muzzle flash preset, I'm having to tweak layer markers. I have a 20 second comp, with roughly 18 layer markers. Only about half of them triggered the flash. The other half, I had to adjust one or two frames in either direction to get it to trigger. I thought at first maybe some of my markers were just too close together, but it even happened with some that were very far apartthe others. Any suggestions? It was a 1080p comp at 29.97fps.

thanks for your help. I have another problem. I've done everything correctly as in the tutorial. But the muzzle flash is not displayed. You could write what he says to the 02:22 point on? I have hearing problems and can not figure out. Might be asked to press a few keys on the keyboard and I can not understand. If you explain it to me I would be grateful. thank you again.

It means you need to install Trapcode Particular to porperly load the file and work with the project.

"the bookmark contains two references to missing effects. installed effects following streams to restore the default (particular)." What does this mean?

YASIN I have exactly the same problem also exactly the same

June 15th, 2012 at 3:49 amyasin says:

I havent any problem until 2.22. everything is normally. ı did same thingyours. but after these seconds, ı can't see the muzzle efects.

Harry Frank Thank you for your respond....
It will be very kind if you can post a new (universalized) version of the preset. Not only the error message but futhermore I can't see the muzzle flash at 2:30 min with my comp setup although I follow every step until then. Best regards

Cantolga, what AE language are you using? These work just fine in CS6 without any errors. I just downloaded them applied directly to a solid in CS6 and did not receive an error.
However, it is possible that there is a language issue here. It's fixable, but I'll have to post a new (universalized) version of the preset.
