I recently purchased a AE template while under the impression that I would be able to help edit it from the creator since I know nothing about AE. Since the purchase, he has been no use, and I am stuck here trying to edit this template to what i need. I am having so many issues, I don't even know where to begin. The people whom I have spoke to claim this to be very advanced work. I would love to just paypal someone to edit it for me haha, but I would also like to attempt to edit it myself.
My three issues I am having are
1) I didn't have the font used, so I got the font, but I can't get it into After Effects.
2) I needed to get a get Cycore effects and I did, and I have put them where I believe they go, but AE won't use them
3) Editing wise, all I need is to cut the template from a minute to about 25 seconds. I want to do this by just cutting off the last 40 seconds that I do not need, but I am not sure how to do this. I can edit the text fine, which is probably the only thing I have figured out.
Any help on this would be great!
Also, I apologize if this is in the wrong place or not what this discussion area is for.
Fonts are handled on the system level. just add it like any systzem font. The CC effects just need to be inside the plug-ins folder in the AE program folder. Obviously you'lll have to make sure you have the right version - 32bit plug-ins won't show up in a 64bit AE. For shortening the project simply use Comp --> Comp settings.
Runn the installers for plug-ins. Add fonts with your normal font tools. This is really basic stuff. What Cycore effects did you need to get? Many are included in AE.
