How to Import Presets into After Effects CC and Premiere Pro CC

by Robert Sharp

After Effects and Premiere Pro are incredible software applications and are about as flexible as your imagination. However, what if you're in a hurry or have the video pro's version of "writer's block"? That's where presets can be a lifesaver, especially when they are free and were created by renowned industry expert Angie Taylor!

Here's a quick guide on how to import presets into After Effects CC and Premiere Pro CC. 

Adobe After Effects

1.  Download the Digieffects Damage presets from here. The presets are contained in a .zip file called "Digieffects Damage Presets AE.zip"
2.  Unzip the "Digieffects Damage Presets AE.zip" file.
3.  Move the "Digieffects Damage Presets" folder to:

On Mac:  Applications/Adobe After Effects CC 2014/Presets
On Windows:  Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CC 2014\Support Files\Presets

4.  Launch After Effects and click on the "Effects & Presets" tab.  You will now see the following under the "Animation Presets" arrow:

5.  Apply a Damage effect to your composition.  You will now see the installed presets under "Animation Presets" as follows (in this example we've applied the Damage Artifact effect):

Adobe Premiere Pro CC

2.  Launch Premiere Pro and click on the "Effects" tab.
3.  Select "Import Presets" and choose the "DigieffectsDamagePresets.prfpset" file.  Your Damage will show up under the "Presets" tab as follows:

 

Note: At the moment we only have presets available for Damage. We are working on new presets for Phenomena, Tweak and Aura and these will be available shortly.The Damage presets are only compatible with Creative Cloud - they will not work in older version of Creative Suite such as CS6, CS5, etc. These presets are however cross-platform (Mac and Windows) and forwards-compatible so they will in future versions.
