Some of our After Effects products use Animation Presets (i.e. Trapcode Particular, Trapcode Form, Magic Bullet Mojo) and included below are some helpful steps to take if these aren't appearing for you.
After Effects by default has the Effects & Presets Window turned off to the user so this is the most common reason for Animation Presets to not appear and the solution is as easy as just turning on this Window in After Effects.
This example shown is with Trapcode Particular, however, the process is the same for all products that use Animation Presets.
If you do not have an Animation Presets menu as picture below, enable this menu by clicking the Effects Controls panel menu.
The next steps will give you a few methods for initializing your Animation Presets. First, we will try to make them appear by reloading the Effects & Presets panel. If this doesn't work, Step 3 describes an alternative method.
If your Animations Presets still have not appeared by performing the steps outlined above, try saving a custom preset. Doing so will force After Effects to reload all the .ffx files.
If you are still unable to get your presets to load in After Effects, please ensure that all Sharing & Permissions privileges for the plug-in's Preset folder and all .ffx files (MacHD/Applications/After Effects/Presets/) are changed to 'Read & Write' for all Administrators and Users on the system and you may leave the ‘Everyone’ Name in Sharing & Permissions set to 'Read Only' by default. Note: We do not recommend correcting permissions on system folders such as: MacHD, /Library, /Application Support, ect..
