Syncing AE & FCP Plugins across Macs
on Nov 3, 2011 at 3:29:02 pm

We have 3 Mac Pro's on the same network at the office.
I was wondering if it's okay to sync plugins using SugarSync.
I know some plugins like Keylight for FCP and Sapphire use Machine ID and probably won't work,
but what about plugins from Red Giant, Video Copilot, and Boris, etc?
Should they be okay? If not, then why?
And where are the file locations for FCP presets and plugins?
I know After Effects uses the MediaCore folder and Plugins folder.
I know this is for FCP X, but basically the same idea I was thinking of.

I don't think this will work for any serialized plugin; you'd have to run the installer.

Check with the individual publishers for more information on render node licensing. Some require separate render-node purchases.
