I've downloaded some trial-plugins from cycore. They're in aex format.
When I drag 'n drop the plugins in the plugins-folder and I open After Effects, I get a error that AE doesn't support the plugins.
*.aex is the PC version. You need the *.plugin version for Mac, but the Cycore FX HD have not yet been released as 64bit versions for CS5, so this is an absolute no go.
For information about what plug-ins are 64-bit, see the links at the bottom of this page: "Plug-ins".
