I know you guys probably get tired of hearing this question...but I actually did look on here to try to find the answer first before I posted, but I couldn't find it.
I've just got particular. I've got AE CS3 and windows xp on a pc. I've got the plug in installed in the "plug in"--> "effects" folder.
Problem....none of the presets show up. I've tried all kinds of things, to no avail. All I have in the plugin--effects folder (pertaining to "particular") is the light blue square icon that looks like a pair of binoculars. I've tried leaving particular in it's folder and pasting the whole thing in there, I've tried pasting particular's "preset" folder in AE's preset folder. I've pasted, copied, and deleted myself silly. LOL.
Any help would be appreciated. The program itself is working....I'm just not getting any of the presets to even show up. I see them in the folder when I actually go to it...but not through AE.
