Hi, I was using the diffuse map. After mapping, orb has gone blank. Any suggestion.I'm using Geforce 1060 6 GB card with CUDA and Mercury CUDA as well. Also color depth to 32-bit bpc.

@developers - You might need to take a look into the new AE 19' Update, the plugin crashing while draging the orb plugin to a solid layer :/

Not sure if it helps but I had an issue with the diffuse map also. I moved the light source around a bit and it actually fixed it. Updated the graphics card driver also just to be sure.
