'Failed to initialize Shaders' message

Hello, my name is Michael. When I try to create a title with atomic particles I get the following error as soon as I apply atomic particles to my text layer: "Failed to initialize Shaders!". This happens always. I am running HitFilm 3 Pro on a Toshiba Qosmio, i7 CPU, 32 GB of RAM, 256 GB SSD, 1 TB conv. hard drive, NVIDIA GFORCE video card with 3 GB RAM, Windows 8.1 with all Windows updates.

Any idea how I can make the atomic particle effect work on a text layer?

    Try converting your text to an embedded composite shot, then apply atomic to the embed.

    Can you make sure your laptop is set-up to use the Nvidia card not the Intel HD present in your machine. It's most likely you are seeing this issue because your machine is using the wrong GPU when using HitFilm. Below is a link about how to set-up your machine to stop this.
