The installers are the most efficient way to update. In fact, it's the only way to install CC.
You can use aliases to bring point to your CS6 scripts, presets, and other things. I have hundreds of presets and scripts all stored in dropbox with an alias stored in CS5, CS5.5, CS6 and now CC and everything is where I expect it. It only took about 15minutes to install CC and have everything working as I wanted it to work.
Hi Rick, I appreciate the tip.
Do you drop the alias into the MediaCore folder, having them all live together in another directory elsewhere on the machine?
Then there are the plugins, presets, and scripts themselves, which I assume is just handled by separate aliases, respectively?
CC and CS6 can also be installed at the same time, so that's nice...
Personally I copy the presets from the CS6 folder and paste them into the CC Folder, works great as long as they are CC compatable.
This was so helpful.
Obvious in retrospect, but I didn't think of it.
Thank you for being so helpful. You saved me some bother.
Ok guys... I'm totally stuck.
Found my old Plug-ins (the ones that aren't in the Application folder), in ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/CS6/MediaCore/
This is where the core Trapcode plugins exist, for instance.
Unfortunately, that folder doesn't exist for CC. Where should I move them too?
There is also a MediaCore plug-ins folder for the new version. The version number for this version of MediaCore is 7.0.
Aha. I guess I was looking for something to the effect of CC1
