Particle Illusion Crash solution

After going back and forth between the Particle Illusion plug-in in Vegas Pro 16 to the Standalone Particle Illusion I started having Vegas crashes. When I opened the Windows 10 Task Manager after closing out of Vegas and Particle Illusion I noticed an .exe of Particle Illusion still running in the background. Once I killed that task all worked as it should with the plug-in in Vegas. Just FYI.

Just to be clear – you were launching PI from within Vegas? You never launched PI from Windows directly, right?


Hi Alan. I was doing both. I’d launch it in Vegas as a plugin. Then later in the day after I had closed Vegas I would launch the standalone - just exploring. Then after I closed the standalone and went back to Vegas the crashes began. Somehow, I think, the standalone wasn’t being released on close - it’s .exe was still indicated in my Task Manager. Once I stopped that task, all returned to normal in Vegas. That’s my working theory right now.

Interesting. Thanks!

FYI the .exe that didn’t close was listed in the “Background processes” portion of Task Manager not under “Apps”.

I am having problem running Particle Illusion plug-in in Vegas Pro too. Whether loading Particle Illusion via Vegas or load Particle Illusion directly, the Particle Illusion is running very slow. Each action I done such ask click, drag, change setting etc. within Particle Illusion will take 5 to 10 seconds to complete. I wondering whether it due to my computer RAM or ROM matters or due to other reasons. I have 30GB free hard disk space and 10GB RAM memory. Any GURU than can help? Email to the Borix support but it takes thousand times to response.
