FYI - just updated to 13.2 and it didn't make a difference.
I don't understand what's happening. What is in this VideoCopilot presets folder you're trying to copy over? How is AE ignoring it?
Is it models that you want to show up inside the Element setup window? Is it animation presets?
3rd party presets don't appear when I paste them into the presets folder.
They are effect presets (ffx) files. Plugins appear to be recognized, but not presets.
Where are you looking for these presets when they're not appearing?
What happens if you create your own animation preset?
With previous versions, the Video Copilot presets that are always copied to
the Presets folder appear under Effects and have worked perfectly.
With the latest CC2014 version, none of those Presets that I copy to that
folder ever show up.
Try looking for them in the Effects and Presets panel. If that doesn't work then create a separate folder called VCP and put the presets there. If that does not work create your own user preset for some effect and save it in a new folder using AE;'s default custom preset's path. If that still doesn't work then please show us some screenshots. I have more than 200 custom presets that show up in the Effects and Presets panel on all versions of AE. I keep them synced using an alias and storing the presets in my dropbox.
If you are trying to find the Effects Presets in the Effects Control Panel then you must have that feature turned on in CC or CC 2014. If that is how you are trying to access the presets then you should carefully the Video Copilot installation instructions.
