I've searched and googled and haven't found an answer:
Where do I place my user presets from CS5 so CC will see them?

Thanks for the reply. I'm on Windows.

Trouble is, there's no After Effects CC folder in the My Documents/Adobe folder. There's a CS4, a CS5, and a folder titled simply "After Effects" which is where I initially placed a copy of my presets. Aside from the presets I placed there, there's nothing inside that After Effects folder, either.

I will create a "User Presets" folder there, place my presets inside, restart AE...and report back with a win or fail.

Yeah, that didn't work either.

Will try to create the file path as you listed it and see if that works.
