Software installation

Prosya software can be distributed as a .zip or .zxp file.

Download the zxp file. The zxp package has been tested with automated install methods like Anastasiy’s Extension Manager or ZXP Installer.

After Effects plug-ins will have a plug-in .aex file and a pdf for documentation. The installer will extract .aex file to the mediacore directory – $mediacoreplug-ins\Prosya\<Plugin Name> and the pdf to $userhomefolder/Documents/Prosya/<Plugin Name>

In windows – $mediacoreplug-ins looks like C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\Plug-ins\7.0\MediaCore and $userhomefolder/ looks like C:\Users\<User Name>

In Mac- $mediacoreplug-ins looks like /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/7.0/MediaCore/ and $userhomefolder/ looks like /Users/<username>

After successful install, Prosya plug-ins will appear under the Prosya folder inside the ‘Effects’ menu or under the ‘Effect & Presets’ tab in After Effects. If automated install does not work, try the manual installation. Manual installation also works if the plug-in is distributed as a .zip file.

Install 7-zip or any similar unzip utility. Right Click on the .zxp or .zip and click 7-zip->Open Archive.
