    Can't install DUIK

    olic25988849 Level 1



      I'm new to AE and am trying to install the Duik plugin.


      I've downloaded the installer for Mac, but when I run it, it says it can't find a valid version of AE.

      I click on the '...' button and navigate to the App folder

      And then get the following message

      As you can see from the screenshot, I clearly have AE installed.


      I am running OSX El Capitan with AE CC 2015.3 and trying to install Duik 15.08.


      Can anyone help please?


      Thanks in advance!

          I'm assuming that you checked with the manufacturer. If you have not I would install a previous version of AE, run the installer, then either create an alias to the folder if you are going to keep a previous version installed. or move it to the new location. It would seem the  only other option would be to wait for an updated installer.

            Hi Rick,


            Thanks for the reply (and apologies for my late one.

            I haven't contacted the manufacturer yet, but that's a good idea so I will do now.

              Hi olic


              I had same problem


              but if you have Duik files in CC 2015 you can just copy and paste to cc2015.3


              It seems work


              but still when i try to make Auto body connect after effect just turned off...

                Yeah, same here, DUIK is a huge part of my workflow, at the website DUIK says this:

                So people at Adobe, can you please check this? I'm sure that a lot of character animators and motion designers would like to see this fixed.

                  The Installer did not work for Windows 10 either.  The Solution was:

                  • Custom Path/Program Files/Adobe/Adobe After Effects CC 2017/Support Files/Scripts/ScriptUI Panels/

                  I am not certain what the Mac equivalent is [been a while] but I do not think Duik is handled like a plug-in on a Mac either.  It is a script.  In theory I would determine where the scripts are located.
