Hi folks – Today Adobe announced the release of Adobe CC 2018. It’s full of awesome new features and improvements that we know you are eager to get started with.

 

The great news is that, with a free update, our current Red Giant products are Adobe CC 2018-compatible. Once updated, all five of our suites and Red Giant Universe will run perfectly in Adobe After Effects 15.0.0 and Premiere Pro 12.0.0 (CC 2018)

 

How to Update for CC 2018-Compatibility

This update is FREE to users of current Red Giant products. To ensure that you’re Red Giant tools are CC 2018-compatible, you’ll need to download and run the latest installers HERE.

 

A Note to Trapcode Suite and Effects Suite Windows Users

Due to plug-in directory changes in CC 2018 on Windows, you will need to re-install Trapcode Suite and Effects Suite with the latest installers, found HERE.

 

A Note to Magic Bullet Suite Users

If you run the latest Magic Bullet Suite installer, in both After Effects and Premiere Pro, you will find that your Magic Bullet plug-ins are now located under the effects category “RG Magic Bullet” (instead of “Magic Bullet”). You will need this update to ensure that the Colorista Panel will work properly in After Effects and  Premiere Pro CC 2018.

 

A Note to Shooter Suite Users

You will need this update to ensure that the PluralEyes Panel will work properly in After Effects and Premiere Pro CC 2018.

 

An Important Note from Adobe:

If you wish to keep older versions of Creative Cloud running alongside CC 2018, when installing, remember to deselect “Remove Old Versions” in the Creative Cloud app. Read more about keeping previous versions installed from Adobe RIGHT HERE.

 

As always, if you have any issues, please reach out to our support team for help. We are here for you.

  2. Thanks Kaylinn for the help, it is very much appreciated

  3. I am still running Trapcode Suite 13, will there be an Adobe CC 2018 update for that soon? Thanks!

    1. Braddon,

      Unfortunately we are not planning on releasing an update for Trapcode Suite 13. Since Particular 3 and Form 3 (TCS14) are the current versions, these were the ones to receive the update for compatibility with CC 2018. Unfortunately, we’re not able to continue updating legacy products for new operating systems and host applications. Rest assured, we will continue to support legacy products in the environments they were designed and tested for.
      Thank you for your understanding.

  4. It said above that this was a “FREE” update?

    When I updated and applied Trapcode Particular I got the Red X over my comp.

    Does this mean that trapcode is the only one that’s NOT FREE and I will have to buy Trapcode for cc 2018?

    1. Teresa,

      This is a free update for the current Red Giant products. Since Particular 3 and Form 3 (TCS14) are the current versions, these were the ones to receive the update for compatibility with CC 2018. Unfortunately, we’re not able to continue updating legacy products for new operating systems and host applications.
      If needed, here is some information on rolling back to an older version of Adobe from this FAQ:

      We would be happy to help.

  5. “Update for compatibility”? Are you kiddin us? Does AE CC2018 have some ultra-new technology? New engine? Multithread (hehe)? No! So it would be minor upgrades for Trapcode 13 to run CC 2018. And you are doing this because of sales plan, not programming obstacles to do it. So i assume that in 2018 you’ll release TC 15, but it will only work with CC 2019. Great symbiosis! Trapcode 13 works on CS6 and it was released mid 2012 🙂 And TC worked well till CC 2017! So for sure it would be a MAJOR technical problem. Are you preparing us to lend your suite like Adobe did? Uff, glad I have perpetual license for CS6. Fusion Studio is for 299$ just as Resolve 14. Maybe it’s time for change.

Free
