After Effects Advanced Lightning
on Nov 15, 2017 at 3:11:02 am

So through a strange twist of events, I deleted my AE Advanced Lighting plug-in that comes with AE itself. Yes, deleted it, totally gone. I looked everywhere and seemed like nobody ever had a problem like this. So the effect was automatically put into a category called 'missing' in the list of effects, and I obviously can't use it. So if somebody could help me out with this, I would really appreciate it!

I'd suggest re-installing After Effects.

Would that not wipe all the saved projects that I already have on it?

Not if you back them up elsewhere as a safety measure.

[Jonathan Lovelace] "Would that not wipe all the saved projects that I already have on it?"

After Effects stores all project information in the AEP files you save on your filesystem. Unless you are going out of your way to save those AEP files in the After Effects application folder, they won't be touched.

If you have any third-party plugins or scripts, those are often stored directly in the application folder, and you might want to back up those folders before uninstalling and restore them after reinstalling.
