Render error in Particle Illusion in Optics 2022

First of all, I’m loving Optics 2022 and the incorporated particle illusions. Well done!

One question, though. I’m trying to render a PI effect to video so I can then composite over an image and am getting an error when trying to do this that says there is a “missing queue element”. I’ve launched PI from optics, selected render, and then start render from the pop-up. I’ve tried different codec’s and formats and get the same message. Any ideas?

This is a known issue. You would need to save the project from the PI interface (launched from Optics) and then reopen it from within the PI Standalone.

Thank you Marco, very useful. Does this mean I need to install PI standalone in that case?

Yes, you would need to also install the PI Standalone.
