Missing presets in AE CS5.
on Apr 12, 2013 at 1:15:55 am

Hi, so I'm brand new to After Effects and I'm trying to add the "rotate over time" animation preset to a title. But whenever I do, it says "this favorite contains 1 reference to a missing effect. Please install following effect to restore reference ("transform"). Now, it's a little concerning because when I open up my finder and look for it under the presets folder, it's right there. I've tried to backtrack, restart, etc, but I keep getting the same error message. Any help?

Specs: 2010 17 in mbp. OSX10.8, 2.53 ghz i5. 8 gb RAM, 500 gb. I'm on AE 10.0.0.458.

Did you update your version of AE to the latest version. I just applied the preset and it worked fine.

Apply the most recent updates. There have been two bug-fix updates to CS5, and you haven't installed them. You should be on 10.0.2.

An even bigger concern is that you appear to be missing a standard effect plug-in: Transform.

So, actually, you should re-install After Effects to make sure that you've installed all of the effects and then update to get the bug fixes.
