Working on a project on my desktop machine, I have light wrap on a bunch of composited shots of people speaking. I get home, plug into my laptop, and it tells me light wrap is missing. I look in my effects and light wrap is in the folder exactly where it was located on the desktop machine. Anyone know why this error would come up? I don't get it since it's clearly there in the same folder structure.
Version of AE down to the last decimal point please. Make sure it is up to date. OS please? Anything changed since the last time this was working? Have you reset preferences and rebooted? If you search Light Wrap or Wrap in the Effects and Presets panel does anything show up?
You did not give us much to go on. I have never seen a standard effect fail to load unless something new has happened to the computer like a new install of something, a crash, some new anti virus updates or something like that.
What Rick said. throwing around generic "this doesn't work." statements is of no use to anyone.
it tells me light wrap is missing
there is no native light wrap effect. this is a 3rd party plugin probably by red giant. if you find it missing, you should re-install it.
