I downloaded and tried to install the Bridge CC Output Module. I could not find the "Bridge CC Extensions" folder only "Bridge CC"
That's because you are looking in the wrong library. Your screenshot shows content of the user library (the one in your user account itself and hidden by default per OSX 10.7)
You have to be in the library at root level. In Finder navigation column select the hard disk where your system is installed on e.g.: Computer/ Macintosh HD (but this is the default, if you have a custom name select the start up disk where your system is installed on.
There you will see:
Choose the upper one: Library / Application Support / Adobe and inhere is a folder called 'Bridge CC extensions'
Sorry that was my fault.
But that still only leaves it blank like this user describes http://forums.adobe.com/message/5511475
I have tried to reset prefrences by holding down the option on launch. Still nothing
But that still only leaves it blank
I'm sorry to hear that and I don't know a solution to this problem. As I am on a Mac (10.8.4) to and have no problem with installing and using AOM it is a strange problem.
Be sure to have tried all solution give in the Adobe KB document (double check on the correct locations and correct folders.
And here is a copy of the tips I gave in an other thread to try also:
Also delete the Bridge6 Plist file (com.adobe.bridge6.plist) from the preference folder in the user library before again reset the prefs voor Bridge with option key on restart.
Download the zip file again and install it again, overwriting the older files.
Also reset prefs and workspaces in CS6 Bridge.
I have tried all of the above and also tried reinstalling from Creative Cloud, nothing seams to work.
Why could this not just be a normal application update? Thought that was the hole point behind this Creative Cloud? This should not be something regular users mess around with. Especially since this is something that worked perfectly fine in CS6
You may have found the vital Link.
The replacement AOM for Bridge CC installed without any problems and works perfectly here on OSX 10.8.4 -- but I also have CS6 installed on the same machine.
Try re-installing CS6 and see if the Bridge CC Output Panel then works.
My guess is that a vital component in Bridge CC is missing and suggest that Adobe need to post a completely new Update on the Cloud for Bridge CC (with a properly integrated AOM incorporated into the Build).
The current idea of offering the AOM as an add-on has proved to be far too difficult and burdensome for the average User to handle.
Uninstalling CS6 after installing CC is bound to damage the CC installation. The two versions have way too many similarly named components in similar places.
Just to reinforce what station_two is saying. If you want to install CS6 after your CC installation it is best to uninstall CC, install CS6, then install CC. Normally the last version sets preferences for such things as file associations.
their directions are very confusing.
I ended up figuring out how to install the panel by mimicking the way it looks in the CS6 Extensions folder:
So the folder included in the download goes in the "Extensions" folder level, NOT within "Workspaces".
Then everything snapped into working (for me).
And like a previous poster said, it needs to be installed in the System > Library > Application Support > Adobe > Bridge CC Extensions folder.
Ty dwintonkalisher, this work perfectly.
After much aggravation and many hours of trying to get output on bridge so I can finish the text book lesson for my PS class, this was the piece of advice that got it to work.
I tried everything downloading the AOM, moving the workspace and module folders to the extension folder, resetting the workspace and so on, over and over. Then Google for answers I found this thread.
I am working out of the correct folders for windows.
Program files>Common file>Adobe>bridge extensions
I know most are working with Mac's but I think this very simple fix will work for both, and its so obvious I don't know why they don't just update the instructions to tell us.
PUT THE AdobeOutputModule.workspace FILE IN THE WORKSPACE FOLDER!!
It would save us all a lot of aggravation, thank you for the help it was all I had to do to make it work just fine.
Not sure if anyone out there is still struggling with this, but I think I've figured out the problem as clearly as can be. The problem isn't the program itself, the problem is that Adobe did a poor job of explaining how to install it.
When you download the module from the Adobe site, you'll get a folder called AOM_Mac. This is just a package folder, it doesn't need to be moved anywhere.
Inside that folder are two items: a folder called Adobe Output Module and a file called AdobeOutputModule.workspace. They both need to be moved to different places.
The Adobe Output Module folder should be put in the Bridge CC Extensions folder (HD:Library/Application Support/Adobe/Bridge CC Extensions), and the AdobeOutputModule.workspace file should be put in the Workspaces folder that is in the Bridge CC Extensions folder (HD:Library/Application Support/Adobe/Bridge CC Extensions/Workspaces). Then, the next time you open Bridge, it should ask you if you want to install the Output extension, and click yes.
The problem we've been having is that we've been moving the .workspaces file without moving the folder to the correct place, so the workspace can't find the tool files contained in the folder, creating an empty window. Adobe should really rewrite their instructions to make this more clear.
Thank ti Sinkromone.
But adobe did this on purpose.
From the Birdge product page.
Features not available in Bridge CC
The following features are no longer available in this version of Adobe Bridge.
- Adobe Output Module
- Export Panel
- Compact Mode
- 3D File format thumbnails and previews
- Synchronized window
Adobe Output Module
The Adobe Output Module is now available as a separate module that can be installed after you've installed Adobe Bridge. For detailed instructions see, Install Adobe Output Module for Bridge CC.The functionality to create contact sheets, PDFs, and web galleries is also available in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom, which are included in your Creative Cloud subscription.
- To create contact sheets and PDFs, see the following:
- To create web galleries using Adobe Lightroom, see Creating web galleries.
See on the link below.
So it may still work for a while but Adobe is probably going to withdraw it from the installation pckage.
ronjaaaaaa Are you using Mac or Windows?
If you are using Mac:
- Close Adobe Bridge CC
- Go to Install Adobe Output Module
- Download the file AOM_Mac_New.zip
- Go to your Dock and click on the Finder icon so you can see at the top of your screen a navigation menu for Finder, such as [File Edit View Go Window Help]
- Click on Go > Go to Folder...
- Copy /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Bridge CC Extensions and paste it into the field
- Copy the Adobe Output Module folder (not the AOM_Package_[OS] folder) into the Bridge CC Extensions folder
- Copy the AdobeOutputModule.workspace file into the Workspaces folder under the Bridge CC Extensions folder
- Open Adobe Bridge CC and enjoy!
If any trouble after clean install (without old version....)
In Bridge, choose Window > Workspace > Reset Workspace.
- Close Bridge.
- In Finder, navigate to the Users/[user name]/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Bridge CC/Workspaces folder
- Delete the !!-$$$AdobeOutputModule.workspace file.
Still doesn't work. If I follow the instructions precisely, I get this error upon launch:
"Could not create work area (/Users/rreed/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Bridge CC/Adobe Output Module/MediaGallery)".
Then if I manually create those folders in my home path, I get this error:
"TypeError: underfined in not an object:
buildUIStack([TabbedPalette:[object...." < this error goes on and on.
This software doesn't seem ready for release.
