Installing older plug-ins in CS5
on Mar 19, 2011 at 1:09:08 am

I have some projects that use two older plug-ins, Sinedots II & Unmult.

I had them installed in CS3 in the folder C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CS3\Support Files\Plug-ins\Effects\

Neither of them have installers and were just distributed as .AEX files that you would manually drag in.

Is there any way I can get these to be recognized in CS5?

Nope. AE CS5 requires 64-bit plugins. You can't use your existing CS3 plugins. You must upgrade them.

Both of these plugins are now CS5-ready and available for free from their developers. You can get Unmult here [link], and you can get Sinedots II here [link].

Cool! Thanks...

Sinedots worked like a charm...

For some reason the existing projects we have that use Unmult don't seem to correlate the new plug-in to the one that was originally used. That is... Unmult is available for me to add to a layer in a new project, but the old projects still complain that it's missing. It's almost like it thinks there are two plug-ins named the same thing and it somehow knows the difference.

Thoughts?

That is probably exactly the case.
