Select another connection port in the Cineware effect options and/or make your security tools behave to not block those connections.
I see you all over these forums. Thanks for being so helpful in community.
Yes, I took a stab at using the After Effects executable "As Administrator" and it worked fine. So it most likely is a security conflict.
Look like I've fallen victim to the same issue too.
Thanks for all the posts above.
I can't actually get the Chinaware Effect/Plugin to launch at all in AE so I can't get to the Options settings.
I'm now running on another machine and I'm worried the same problem will occur on that mac too.
Can anybody tell me which other Port Options I can use in this event? I'm clueless when it comes to this sort of issue.
This happens if you run after effects without admin permissions. Maybe its only the first time for running cinema 4d. Maybe adobe cloud thing runs apps without admin permissions. Just find it in start menu and run with admin permissions.
Yes! Thank you very much indeed. Turned out I was logged in with a legacy account. Just signed out and signed in again with correct account and admin preferences and it all started working again. Thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge.
