We are using after effect with deadline (render farm software) on something like 10 different computers.

Quite often the error we got are missing plugins or different plugins versions installed.
It is very hard to keep track of all the plugins and all the versions on all the computers.

Does anyone know if there is something like a plugin manager for after effect ?
The goal would be to know what plugins and which versions of the plugins are installed on every machine.

I thought about writing a script listing the .aex in the Plug-ins folder but this would list the plugins installed but not the versions..

Is there something internal to after effect to list the plugins?

The only thing I found is this:
List all plug-ins and version numbers loaded into After Effects | After Effects region of interest

It generates a AEVers.txt but I think it s project related and not After Effect related. (for instance it generates an empty file when there s no project open).

Please let me know if you know something which could help keeping all the computers identical plugins wise or at least give us the information of what plugin is missing or what plugin is an older versions.

Thank you.
