Trapcode particular 1.5 installation issues in Intel Mac
on Jul 30, 2007 at 10:08:07 am

I tried to install Trapcode Particular 1.5 on my MacBook.

Adobe After Effects CS3

The particular plugin is not located in my effects/trapcode folder.

Any ideas why its not installed correctly?

Actually the plug-in is installed inside /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/CS3/MediaCore

Why, for the life of me, this is the installation point is a mystery. BCC5 also installs at this location. What's the matter with the Plug-In folder inside the application?

Thanks Jim.

I created the folder structure /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/CS3/MediaCore and tried installed trapcode particular plugin and it works.

I think this is the situation. In CS3, PPro uses only the "Common" folder and AE scans it too. Since some of the Trapcode plugs work in PPro CS3 (Shine, Starglow, 3D Stroke) we had to put them there (if we put them in AE plugs folder PPro won't see them, and if we put them in both, AE would complain about multiple copies). Then we decided to put all Trapcode plugs in the same folder.

Im also having issues installing particular.
I tried making the common folder and installing the plug-in as described above, but once I did that, I still dont see the "trapcode" option available in the effects drop down menu.
Could someone please tell me exactly where to place all the trapcode folders? This is really frustrating, I'd appreciate any help.

Thanks

Hi friends!!
Well, this is the installation procedure:

1. Create this folder structure /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/CS3/MediaCore/

2. Install Trapcode Particular 1.5 for AE7 in /MediaCore/ folder

3. Launch the updater for AE CS3 version

That's all!!

;)

I just did what was written, i have intel mac with cs3 and ae cs3, i did the whole library thing in 3 different ways, I downlaoded shine and 3-d stroke before, so would there be two different trapcodes? well i installed them with 2 different folders, no go, i installed inside that folder, no go, i installed inside another trapcode folder that was there no go. Also after installing the particular does not have a .plugin at the end of the name particular, it also comes with two diff folders, trapcode and then trapcode particular ffx, where does this go?

Hi,
I did what u said and still doesn´t work.
When I istall the cs3 updater it says "No installation was necessary. The files to be installed are already on your disk, or are not needed for your hadware setup"
I can´t see the trapcode on the effects drop down menu.
I do see the trapcode particular ffx folder on the effects & presets on the right, but not the plug in and If I try to click on any it just says the Particular is missing.( I was able to see it before I did the Mediacore folder)
I can´t seem to find any solution for this on any forum...do U think u could give me a hand with this, i´d really appreciate it! :)
Thanks!

Hello All,

I Have the same problem (working with AE CS3 on a Macbook pro Intel Core Duo with Leopard)

Some of the trapcode plugins were automatically installed in the MediaCore folder (these plugins were 3Dstroke, Form, Shine and Starglow). The other plugins (Echospace, Lux, Sound Keys, Particular) said I should select the After effects plugin folder, so I did that. I couldn't see these plugins in AE, so I put them in the MediaCore folder too, that still didn't work. These plugins also didn't have a ".plugin" extension so I added the extension but it still doesn't work. Not even after a AE CS 3 update (no updates needed), or a reboot.

Does anyone know the answer on this issue because it seams a lot of people are experiencing problems even after the previous posts.

Chalk another one up for not being able to recognize the plug ins in After Effects after explicitly following the above directions.
