ART Rig Disappears in Maya playback

I bring in the rig from the add chr for animation. looks good, but when I hit play the mesh disappears until I hit stop. Obviously I need to see the mesh while its playing back… its my own custom character, and I’ve rigged the same character in humanIK without this issue. Any ideas? I’ve tried setting the isolate selected to both classic and material, tried hiding the control rig… nothing.

seems to be something with viewport 2.0

I ran into the same issue when I Use the Mannequin mesh to practice rigging. I was able to fix it by selecting the mesh, going to Layers section, and right click to choose “Remove Selected Objects.” Seems to have an issue with the Layer that came with the mesh.
