I have downloaded the saber plugin several times in my PC. Somehow whenever I try to download even after using the custom path to the plugin folder,
and i try to open the video codec file it is always empty. I dont know why my computer doesn't show it even after clearly downloading it.

In my other few attempts, i used a different device to download saber.aex file, and shared it via google drive to myself, and then downloaded it again, but ultimately the .aex file cant be copied or moved to the plugin folder.

every time i try to install it and use it it forces the program to not respond. i have watched your tutorial on how to install it through the folders and deleted the old file and reinstalled it that way and it continues to do the same thing. i would really love to use this program as i know many who have used this to make awesome stuff. and I know many others are having the same problem aswell please let me know what I can do to fix this issue

Whoever doesn't work, use custom install.
Application -> AtherEffect2020 -> plug-ins -> effects

Hey guys! You people are doing a really great job but I am stuck at a place, I am not getting this saber effect for my After Effects CC 2020 version. Is this effect compatible with CC 2020 version of After Effects or not?
