          No, not really. All presets should be included, even the ones for the CC effects (which don't come with the trial). What operating system are you on? What system language?

              Four is a suspicious number, because that is the number of Text _effects_ included with After Effects. Can you confirm that you're looking at the text _animation presets_ and see only four?

                Along the lines of what Todd is saying, if you are using the Effects and Presets palette to search for these effects (not the Effects menu -- presets don't show up there), make sure you have "Show animation presets" enabled in the panel's drop-down menu. You should see "*Animation Presets" listed at the very top. Open that up, and then open "Presets", and finally open "Text". You should see the presets listed there. Searching for "text" won't bring up many text presets, ironically. Most of them don't have "text" in their names, which is what the search actually operates on.

                  I'm not aware that the presets can be downloaded somewhere, but it should not be a problem to zip them up and provide them for download someplace if need be. I don't think anyone from Adobe would object.

                      Yeah, it looks like your presets are missing. The presets are the ones that show up under *Animation Presets. All the rest, including the four items listed under "Text" are effects.

                          The first thing I'd do is open up a windows explorer window and look in the program files / AE folder for one named Presets.

                          If you find a bunch of sub folders like Backgrounds, Text, Transitions there then your settings in the effects and presets palette are messed up.

                          If you don't see a Presets folder or it is empty then I'd guess that the presets are not included with the trial version.

                          Another way to look for your presets is to use the menu. Go to Animation>Browse presets. Bridge should open showing you all the presets folders. If there are none there, then they are not included with the trial version. If they are there, enjoy....
