    Where is the user location scripts folder on OSX?

    Darius Family Level 1

      Scripts in After Effects : "Scripts are also installed in user locations starting with After Effects CC 12.1."


      Does anyone know what the correct path is to this folder?




      I'm working on an administered machine, I cant install scripts to the /Application/ folder.


      Would be great if Adobe could all this information to the KB article...

          Scripts are in the application folder by default:

          If you want to you can put Scripts in the User Libraries folder in your Documents folder or you could create your own scripts folder. This will work with many scripts:

          As you can see under User Presets there is an Alias that points to the Application folder. I keep my User Preset Library in Dropbox so that any user preset I create is available on any machine that I'm working on. For most scripts you can create a User Scripts folder here just for convince. There are some scripts that must be installed in the Script UI Panels folder in the Application folder:

          You'll have to get Admin access to install these scripts so they show up in the Menu. Folks that sell those kinds of scripts may have work arounds for your situation.
