Hey Dude Where's my After Effects Plug Ins

For all of you running Avid and Final Cut Pro on Mac OS X and are planning on using Adobe After Effects in conjunction, here's a little something that left me wondering "Hey dude, where's my After Effects Plug Ins?"

After installing Adobe After Effects 6.5 Professional on a G5 running OS X, I noticed that when I went to use all of those beautiful effects in the effects palette, they weren't there! I did some research and found that many Mac 3rd Party plug in installers incorrectly identify After Effects 6.5 and that some may install their plug-ins into the Mac OSX Package for the After Effects application. In other words, it is very likely that After Effects will install the plug ins in the wrong folder on Mac OS X and you need to move them.

To locate these plug ins, control click the After Effects apllication icon in the Finder and select 'Show Package Contents.' You can them move the plug ins into the plug in folder.
