Missing Effects

Post by GeckoKid » Mon Jul 30, 2018 2:43 pm

Hello! Loving the plugin :)

However I just updated After Effects 2018 (from 2018) today and opening a project I was working on before showed me many missing effects - What would be the culprit apart from the update itself and most importantly how do I fix it?

Hi! You might want to try just clicking "OK" on that missing effects warning and ignoring it. In my experience, the rigs and Duik still work just fine despite this warning from Ae. I think it's just that Ae doesn't recognize the names of those "effects" added to the layers, but it doesn't mean the expressions won't work and the Duik scripts won't still work. If things aren't working then there's more to it, but I think it's nothing to worry about.

yes exactly, the effects are not found because Duik (15) has to be re-installed, but everything will work correctly.

This won't happen with Duik Bassel, the latest version, as these effects are not stored the same way; Characters rigged with 15 will still show the error, but you can just ignore it.
