I cannot get hypervoxel sprites to preview. If I load a scene from the Newtek Content that comes with LW, the sprites show up, but when I create my own particle system and set it up for hypervoxel sprites, they do not show up in layout. They render OK but I am doing some rough animation work and would love to see the sprites. What gives?

When I worked with sprites in 7.5c, I was not able to preview them directly within layout. I used Viper to preview them. I haven't gotten a chance to play around in 8.0 but I would imagine that it is the same there.

So, in essence, use Viper and your problems will be somewhat solved.

Did you click show particles in the HV interface?

Yes, show particles is on. I loaded a scene that does show up inpreview and made sure all of my settings were the same and . . . nothing. I am using saved previews for a story reel and layout before I start final rendering and one scene involves quite a bite of particle work and I cannot see the sprites. This SUCKS!!!
