I'm going through Chad Perkins's "The After Effects Illusionist" book and there is a section on the Colorama effect. In his example, he has a "ton" of animation presets to choose from, like: "Alpha Ramp", "Ramp Red", "Fire", etc... while I only have one to choose from "Germs" in my copy of After Effects CS4. I have After Effects CS3 installed on my machine and it's the exact same thing. Which means its "probable" that I didn't delete any presets since the locations of the anmiation presets for different versions reside in different locations. Does anyone have any thoughts? Is there a Goodies folder with AE that comes with the installation disc that might have this? I don't have the discs with me. I appreciate any help.
You're not referring to animation presets. You're referring to preset palettes in the Output Cycle properties of the effect. Just expand the Output Cycle property group in the Colorama effect in the Effect Controls panel and you'll see a Use Preset Palette menu.
Thanks.......you are correct..........it looks similar!
