          There is a folder called PRESETS in the application folder.

          Why is that not working for you?

            There is no preset folder:

            The files are:

            -Adobe After Effects CS4.app

            Adobe After Effects CS4 Read Me.pdf

            Adobe After Effects Render Engine

            aerender

            a text file

            Folder legal

            Mocha

            Folder plugins

            Folder scrips

            And a alias to uninstall.

             

            Im plugins is no folder presets and in the normal application folder of course also not.

             

            Where is he?

              If you don't see a Presets folder there, then something is wrong with your installation.

              Assuming that you're referring to animation presets (as opposed to other kids of presets like, say, output module presets)...

               

              See the first paragraph of "Downloading, installing, and moving animation presets":

               

              "The animation presets that are installed with After Effects are in the Presets folder located in the Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CS4\Support Files (Windows) or Applications/Adobe After Effects CS4 (Mac OS) folder. Animation presets that you create are saved by default in the Presets folder located in My Documents\Adobe\After Effects CS4 (Windows) or Documents/Adobe/After Effects CS4 (Mac OS).   You can add a single new animation preset or an entire folder of new animation presets to either of the Presets folders."

              I'm curious where you were looking. It's my job to make sure that you can find information like this, so I'd like to know what you tried.

              Animation presets are not specific to an operating system.
