How to install VCP products

Postby Aegis Kleais on 12/4/2008, 7:56 pm

I may just be a moron, or maybe cause I'm new to this, but since there is no installer for Twitch, how do I install this to AFX?

There is a Twitch.aex
A Twitch Recompile Directory full of files
And a twitch_ae.key file

I have absolutely no idea how to install this. :oops: Nor can I find a resource on VCP to show me how.

If I install everything in the PRO bundle, will there only be a TWITCH and EVOLUTION folder under the PLUGINS folder? (Evolution/RiotGear/DesignerSFX are moreso resources than Twitch is, am I right in understanding that?)

Twitch is a preset. You should read the "Installation.htm" file that comes with the product, it will explain everything.

EDIT: In addition, this question has been asked many many times in the forum. Do a search and you will find many answers.

That file doesn't show up actually, until you unizip the archive. Once you do, it's there.

OK, Twitch seems installed, however, when I use it, it seems to place VCP watermarks on the project.

Does this have to do with the twitch_ae.key file I have? I cannot find instructions on where to place this. I see it's a registry file, but double clicking it to merge with the registry states that it's not a valid registry file and that it needs to be imported from the registry editor (which looks for .reg files and not .key files)

Hi, I'm trying to get rid of the watermark, but I can't find the .key file within the stuff I downloaded. In which folder/download will I find it?

Also, I'm trying to look through the downloads for it, incase I overlooked downloading it, but my download session has now expired.

And guys, since the password is case sensitive, it'd help if you printed the password on the postcard in a serif font. I have two letters which could either be capital a "i" or lowercase "l" and it's taken me multiple attempts to work out which was which.

Cheers,


Gavin

Thanks for the feedback Gavin. I will make sure that the powers that be, are made aware of this suggestion.

Thanks

I can't believe they can't get me a key file for my purchase of Twitch. I've haven't slept yet for this project that is due this morning and I get the watermark!

I hope i don't have to do all of the effects again.

WHY THE HECK COULDN'T THE KEY FILE BE SENT WITH THE PURCHASE CONFIRMATION?

Update:
Unlike all the other companies where you download software, this company separates the keyfile in a separate download. So if you are not alert or rushing to meet a deadline you'll miss the entirely separate download button for the all important key. And the file is not name "key" by the way. Furthermore if you are downloading multiple rar packages, you must place them all in one folder and just double click (Mac) on the first one and the other will open automatically. Again, I did not see anywhere on this site where it clearly says this. But then, having small white text on black background is the worst combination for legibility. You never see any major advertisement done this way because they know this as a fact and need to communicate quickly and clearly in this maddeningly fast pace culture. -Paul

Thanks for your feedback, I've added a more prominent notification on the download page so people are sure to download the keyfile.

Best.
