I'm finding it difficult to install the Twitch plugin to my preset. I do know it came with installation procedure. But it seem not working for me. I gues the instruction says a KEY should be downloaded. But I don't know how. Please help me to get this right. Thanks

Hey Andrew,
I keep trying to copy the "Andrew Kramer" folder for the lightsaber preset in After Effects 6.5 but it wont go into the presets file. I've tried at least ten times and it goes through with it as if it were working but it isn't appearing in the folder or in after effects. Any suggestions?

Thanks

First you must have purchased trapcode particular. Once you have and have installed it, it should work just fine. I think it runs around $500 USD.

Hi Andrew
Do these presets work on AE CS5, Win 7 64bits?
Paul
08/03/2011
It depends which presets your trying to install, heres an example: Their 3D falloff preset only works for AE 6.5, 7.0, CS3 & CS4. To find specifications for presets , when you click on the tutorial, under TUTORIAL NOTES: It will specify what is needed. I know for a fact that it doesnt work... I have a 64 bit win 7 cs5
:D
01/22/2011
yes it will
jared bush
12/09/2010
it does work but you need to put the 64bit plugin into the plugin folder as well

From here i made a New Folder and renamed it 'Presets' and simply copy and pasted VC Presets into the directory. I then started up After Effects and on the right hand side under "Effects

05/27/2009
For all you people who are still having trouble with the presets, you need to install them in this directory:

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CS4\Support Files\Plug-ins\Effects

I only found this out a while ago, as I realized in my After Effects CS4 program files, there is no presets folder. Putting the presets in the Effects folder seemed to do the trick for me.

In this video it says:
