What do you consider is the "correct location" for that plugin?
That would be
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5\Plugins/en_US\VSTPlugins
This is correct, yes? EQuality works installed here as does Compassion & EQuick.
I have been told in the past that all 3rd party plugins have to go here as we still do not have a plugin manager in Premiere (somewhat stupidly, IMHO)
and as a result, any audio plugin I need to use in Premiere Pro has to be installed to multiple locations.
I am trying to track down where I read that it does not actually go there.
I was also confused that I also read from vplane that one can not "intercept" the signal directly from an application but there was a work around - allegedly on their FAQ page. ( I never discovered that information there either).
Neil...I am using you as a guinea pig to get this sorted...so I wish you luck. Please keep posting progress.
Shooternz, use away my friend.
I know the plugin location is correct for Premiere (there is no plugin manager, no way to set a plugin path, and I have been told by Adobe this is what I have to o#do) so no problem there.
EQuality picks up from this location with no trouble.
The only thing that it could possibly be is that it is a 32-bit plugin.......and Premiere will not accept these, as there is no BitBridge.
(Again, daft and again an example of how Audio is treated like the shabby relative)
FWIW, third party VST audio plugs don't work in Mac Pr CS5.5 or 5 either, even though the Help documents claim they do.
I can use my third party plugs in Au, but not Pr.
That's interesting Jim - thanks for this, I thought I was being some sort of ultra-numpty.
I have managed to find one that works - DMG Audio's wonderful EQuality http://www.dmgaudio.com/products_equality.php but oddly enough neither Compassion or Equick seem to work - Compassion crashes Premiere completely (it will not even start) and EQuick installs & gets recognized but causes other issues so it had to go - the claim earlier that these worked was sadly premature, as they looked to be there - problems all started when I tried to use them. EQuick killed Premiere on quitting, Compassion just would not have it at all and crashed Premiere on startup. These were VST2 versions in all cases - I did not even bother trying the VST3 variants.
I think I will file a bug report, and hopefully this will get clarified & fixed - next step will be to provide a reliable repro, I guess.
