    Where are AE CS3 Workspaces located on Macintosh?


      I want to copy a workspace from my Mac to a co-workers Mac.

      Where is it located on my Mac?



      Thanks for any help,



      OSX 10.5.8

      AE CS3 Pro

      2.8 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon

      6 GB RAM

          Custom workspace data for After Effects CS3 is stored in:

          \Users\username\Library\Preferences\Adobe\After Effects\8.0\ModifiedWorkspaces


          Same general path for CS4 and CS5, just substitute 9.0 or 10.0 for the version folder.  Windows users can find the folder under C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\After Effects.  (Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application  Data\Adobe\After Effects\)


          The UserWorkspace#.xml files represent the different workspaces you've created.  Open the file and inspect the UserName value (at the bottom) if you need to know which workspace it is.  Note that if you haven't explicitly given your workspace a name (via the Workspace menu > New Workspace), the UserName value may be a duplicate of the last workspace you were working in.  ie., Standard, Animation, etc.
