Optical Flares Presets Missing After Effects

Postby antofarr on 11/5/2014, 8:51 am

I purchased Optical Flares bundle for After Effects. When I launch the plug in, the preset folder is empty. I am running After Effects CC on IMac. Any idea how to fix this? Thanks for your help!

When you installed did you be sure to move the whole Optical Flares folder to the AE plugins folder?

Make sure the “Pro Presets” or “Pro Presets 2” folder installed directly into the Lens Flares folder. Here is the folder directory:

WINDOWS: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CS6\Support Files\Plug-ins\Optical Flares\Optical Flares Presets\Lens Flares

MAC: Applications\Adobe After Effects CS6\Plug-ins\Optical Flares\Optical Flares Presets\Lens Flares

- If the installation is correct then check permissions settings. We recommend installing as Administrator rather than a user-account to avoid permissions issues.
