    Element 3D Models won't open in CC 2017

    Arider56107 Level 1

      I installed Element 3D on the latest version of After Effects and immediately installed all my models (projectile, star pack, future buildings, etc.) I opened After Effects and Element, to find that only four of the twelve model packs I had installed could actually show up, being the Metropolitan, JetStrike, Rooftop and Starter Pack. I .don't know where else to find answers, having already tried Video Copilot and them not even knowing,

          Without system and version info nobody can tell you much. Presumably you may have a permissions issue on the packs or a compatibility problem, because they work different from the commercial packs.

              I am also having this same problem now in August I have a video for it on whats going on if you want to see it ill drop the link . It actually just stopped working the other night. When you click on Scene Setup it responds as if its opening, but no window loads but locks up After Effects completely on a brand new composition/Project. I've tried turning off both monitors as I am running 2 4K and still nothing. when you check processes and programs opened you cannot find element 3D anywhere. . I know this is a problem for videocopilot and I should be posting on their forum but I cannot even seem to be able to get past registration LOL.

                First thing I would do would be to update your GPU drivers and restart your computer.

                  Yeah I solved the problem not a driver issue wasn't a restart computer issue. drivers up to date and did restart multiple times. So it was my mistake and I tested it a 3rd time and now I am not trying it again. The element 3D crash fix delete the cache well I deleted all the files and it kept queuing me to add my element 3D license again. This happened twice in one month. for someone reason the screen to add license didn't pop up this particular moment and had to mess with it a few times before I got it to work.
