Hello tit4tat6191,

Some users are experiencing different issues with DirectorZone and the CL team is working to correct these.

On DZ, I just did three searches and got quite different results:



Using "snow" there were 1700+ results, 800+ of which are particles. Using "snow particle" there were only 29 results, most of which were particles. Using "snow particles" yielded only 8 results.

Without trying to defend the search engine on DZ, success very much depends on (a) the search criteria you enter (b) how well users have tagged their uploaded effects.

Glad to hear it was a temporary problem with Director Zone Search and thanks to those who put in the "fix". I don't use DZ that often, but it certainly comes in handy for titles and special effects. Dutch

Without actually knowing, I think the difficulty is that many of the issues encountered with DirectorZone are not consistent for all users using all browsers.

One thing certain is the importance of reporting issues such as those you've both raised.
