simple heads and trails vfx not showing

other templates begin generating particles as soon as i add them, but when i add the simple heads and trails particle system to my graph, nothing happens. not getting any shader errors. any ideas how to fix it?

edit: actually, the simple ribbon template doesn’t spawn particles either, and that one also uses the output particlestrip quad, so i’m thinking it’s something to do with that.

I’m having the same problem. Anything that uses a Particle Strip doesn’t seem to work. No error nothing, simply no visuals.
