Trapcode Particular - my logo/layer wont emit particles

I have after effects 2020 with trapcode particular, I set my emitter type, to "layer"

and then I have linked the "layer emitter" to my layer/logo.

I expect my logo to emit particles but, its like the particles are not

recognizing or linking to my logo. The particles do not respect the "shape" of my logo.

It seems like such an easy step and process when I watch tutorials,

yet my logo is not connecting properly with the particular and emitting particles from my logo shape.

Is this a AFX 2020 problem with trapcode? It doesnt seem like it, everything else works fine.

I also start up after effects with "run as integrated driver" option, which i also dont believe

would be affecting this. 

 

Anyone have any suggestions or thoughts?
I just want to get my logo to emit particles with particular.

THANKYOU  : )

Have you checked the User Guide: https://www.redgiant.com/user-guide/trapcode-particular/emitter-layer-emitter/?

 

Did you properly set things up with your 3D logo layer?

I agree with Rick that you should look up tutorials directly on Red Giant's site. There's a video tutorial on their site specifically for this. 

It doesn't sound like this is your issue, one of the biggest "gotchas" about layer emitters is that you typically need to turn the particle count MUCH higher to get visible results, so it's not uncommon for someone to get it linked up properly, but then see no particles (because they have too few) and think they've done something incorrectly.
