I recently opened one of my projects to find that any layer upon which CC Simple Wire Removal is used displays and renders as pure black. I went straight to the Adobe forums and found this thread full of users having the same experience: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4895694
So, many people with many different configurations are seeing this problem: black (or purple) frames on any layer that uses CC Simple Wire Removal.
My problem is I have a heck of a lot of work done on this project with CC Simple Wire Removal, and I need to finish it and get it rendered!
I've contacted CycoreFX, as some users suggest, but received no reply. I tried telephoning but the line appears to be defunct.
Others suggest reinstalling the Cycore plug-ins from the installation CS6 disk image, or from CS5.5. Since I installed Creative Cloud fresh on this machine via Internet I have no disk images, and no 5.5.
I would appreciate any advice on how to reinstall the Cycore plugins on a Mac running CS6 (188.8.131.52), installed via Cloud. Thank you in advance.
You can uninstall After Effects CS6 (11.0.0), re-install it, copy the CC Wire Removal plug-in from the plug-in folder to your desktop, then update to After Effects CS6 (11.0.2) and put the plug-in from your desktop back into the plug-ins folder.
Adobe After Effects CS6 (11.0.3) has been released. This update fixes many crashes and other bugs, including this issue with the CC Simple Wire Removal effect.
Also, this fix is in After Effects CC (12.0).
