Missing Output plug-in Error Message
by Glen Jennings on Feb 27, 2011 at 9:21:23 pm
So I keep getting this error everytime I open After Effects (CS4) that says :
You have at least one output module template that refers to a missing output plug-in. Please check your Output Module Templates.
Then it asks me for my password.
Then it goes through Installing Additional File Formats and Effects for a couple minutes.
Then it tells me that After Effects was unable to install additional file formats and effects. Please reinstall from the original installer with a serial number.
I hit OK.
Then when I go to Make a Movie it has an error message that says:
After Effects warning: cannot output to this format because it is not currently installed.
I am unable to make a movie file through the render queue and can only export a Quicktime.
I know that it started after I deleted a render template for H.264 Quicktime that I had made and it seems odd that that would cause this problem.
Could I solve this issue by copying and pasting output module template files fro my work computer in a a specific folder and make this issue go away? If so where are those file located and what are they called?
Any other advice on how to solve this issue are Greatly Appreciated.
