Hi Guys,

I'm sure this is a simple problem, but I can't seem to solve it. I guess others have had this issue, but the only thing I've found was a PC quick tutorial on solving this and it doesn't seem to be working for me. Maybe it's because I'm on a Mac. I have tried several versions of placing the presets and textures in different folders, preset and pluggin, next to the license, but nothing seems to be working. I get all the basic flares and never even actually realized that there were a bunch of other cool presets. Now, I'm working on a space scene and they would come in really handy. I'm hoping someone might have a Mac and tell me where they need to go, and or just shoot me a screenshot of the finder, so I can see how it's set up. Thanks in advance. Cheers...Ian

Did you buy the Optical Flares plugin from Videocopilot and install it properly.... AND is it the correct version for your version of AE?

Yes. I think it's installed properly and it is for CS6

I figured it out. Had things in the wrong place. Kind of surprised it worked at all. Found a tutorial online by Kramer. https://www.videocopilot.net/products/opticalflares/installation/
