I'm not sure exactly when it happened, and I've kept the same version of AE 2017 for the past few years. I had plugins from Video Copilot, GenArts Sapphire and Boris fx. One day, I noticed all of them were gone from my effects panel. The only ones I still have are the Trapcodes. All other 3rd party plugins seem to have disappeared. What might have caused this? I can get them back one by one, but I'm just confused as to why this happened in the first place. Has anyone experienced this issue before? I'm running OSX Mojave, if that info helps. I've experienced quite a lot of problems in AE after the Mojave upgrade--but unfortunately, I don't remember if the plugin issue happened before or afterward. (And it likely has nothing to do with it, at all)

I suspect the upgrade has moved some folders around on you. I lose all my plugins with each CC upgrade and have to reinstall. I’ve now got all the install files and licences all in one place ready to import after upgrade. I feel sure there must be a way to bypass this and have them linked centrally, but no luck so far.
