How do I move Red Giant plugins? I can't find them on my computer. I mostly am concerned with after effects but I could use them across the board. They are all 64 bit plugins. Ive googled it but I cant find the stuff they are talking about. Im getting pretty confused. We upgraded at work and I need some of these ASAP. I also have a technicolor plugin too that I can't find. Please help.

With Red Giant plugins, if all else fails you can download them again and re-install them. I've had mixed success updating my AE releases and plugins, so I always keep a backup of the installers and the serials handy.

I feel your pain, Ryan - I just went through a nightmare re-installing the plugins for CS5.5. A call to RG support would definitely help - they're quick and responsive and will help you troubleshoot. I assume you've looked here:
As it turns out, the installers for my installation on the PC were hit or miss. Some of them showed up in CS5.5 (Photoshop, AE, PPro) and some didn't. I had to find them (search for folders with the plugin names - in my case they were all in one place), then cut an paste them into the /plug-ins folders for CS5.5, then they worked fine. A real headache, though, for a while. Good luck!
