Effect Dropdown Menu all messed up!
on Jan 26, 2012 at 11:43:08 am

Apologies if this has been mentioned before but I am running AE 5.5 on a Mac and I recently installed some new plug ins and it has now messed up my effects drop down menu (so for instance my Sapphire plugins are not in there different folders but all the plugins are just in the menu - see below) any help would be greatly appreciated!

I believe they need to be in a sub-folder inside the plug-ins directory. Just make a "sapphire" or whatever folder and drag them in there. Then you'll have to restart AE.

Erik's probably right, but I'd try something else first.

If I tried installing the plugin package intuitively rather than following the developer's installation instructions TO THE LETTER, I would uninstall them and start all over again.

Thanks for the replies - they are already in a folder called Sapphire Plug Ins in the plug in directory.

Anyone else got any ideas? All the effects are in proper subfolders in the plug ins folders but they still appear like this in the actual app.

Any thought would be really appreciated!!!
