What book are you going through?
Have you restarted After Effects?
What, exact, version number of After Effects are you using? (For CC 2017, it should be something like 14.x.x)
What operating system?
They show up now. They didn't sync right away. Thanks for responding. I need to create a new post because I can't set the Blurs/Evaporate animation as per the book Adobe After Effects CC 2017 release from Peach Pit Press. In chapter two I was able to do this but now I'm getting this message when I try to import from Bridge.
Version is 18.104.22.168, I am running Windows 10 Home, I have a Haswell E CPU 5820 and 32 GB or RAM in a quad channel configuration with an Asus STRIX gaming motherboard, and Intel HHHL SSD and an AMD 8GB Radeon RX 480 STRIX graphics card so I should have plenty of horsepower to run the Adobe Suite. Let me know if I should start a new thread for this issue. I've also deleted my preferences on startup as per the book's instruction.
This is going to be a steep learning curve. i'll keep using Filmora and Power Point for my projects while I'm learning the Adobe suite. Thank you.
