I have installed Adobe AE CS5.5 and am attempting to run a template from maxafter.com but am being told there around 40 missing files or something like that. Is it because I am in trial or because the template was done in CS3? The administrator for maxafter has told me it should work in any version after CS3.
Using trial version of some Adobe priogras like After Effects ussually will not have all resources, like color finesse or some templates like the expression behaviors set
If it reports missing files, then that usually refers to footage items that are used in the project. Has nothing to do with plug-ins or any of that. Double-check the package and extract al lsources into the correct locations or use Replace Footage to point to an alternate location. And please do read the help!
