When i apply VC orbs to my solid, nothing appears.
I restart After Effects, changed GPU settings, apply again VC orbs to a solid it works.
Creating a light, everything disappears.
Trying to save, and my AEX is crashing.

Literally everybody here and on Youtube complain about this plugin which doesn't work and we don't have any answers from you Andrew. Please don't sell magic if you are not sure it's working well. Or just working.

Hello,
Great plugin!!!
With using your optical flares...how can you get a sunrise right on the edge of the planet? I'm finding the foreground switch is cutting off the 'sun' too early.
Thanks for any ideas.

It works only in HD. On 4K resolution camera tool freezes AE (2019cc)

I tried to work on 4K resolution with the orb size of 400. Textures loaded, and everything started to lag. Camera rotation tool freezes AE :(
