Hi,

wondering if anyone's noticed this or if I missed some info somewhere about how to make it work in CS5; but Custom Effects that worked for me in CS4 now no longer function. Has something changed in the syntax? I tried just copying them from my PresetEffects.xml file in CS4 to the one in CS5, but everytime I launch a project that uses those effects it tells me they are missing...even though they appear in the Effect Controls pallette. They are all marked as "Missing: [Name]" where [Name] is the name of my effect.

Looking further at this today, I tried installing a Custom Effect from Eran Stern using Maltaanon's PolyCE AIR installer application;

Install reports as being successful, but I get the same "Missing:" text in front of the effect name when I apply the animation preset. So it's not just my own CEs.

Something is broken with Custom Effects in CS5 I think...anyone else care to try this and compare?

Hi!

I had the same problem.
I'm not an expert, but this syntax works for me with CS5.5:

Effect matchname="Effect" name="Effect"
Group name="Group"
Checkbox name="Checkbox" default="false"/
Slider name="Slider" default="0" valid_min="0" valid_max="100" slider_min="0" slider_max="100"/
Angle name="Angle" default="0"/
Color name="Color" default_red="125" default_green="125" default_blue="125"/
Point name="Point" default_x="0" default_y="0"/
Layer name="Layer" default_self="true"/
Popup name="Popup" popup_string="Item1|Item2|Item3" default="1"/
/Group
/Effect

(Here I left the "less than", and "greather than" characters in the beginning and end of the lines, but they are needed - of course)

Maybe there is no other difference:

name= only once

and works the popup control

I hope it works for you too..
