Hello - I am trying to create a preset in After Effects to share with others, but when I create the preset I navigate to the location where it should be saved and nothing is there:
Local Drive\Users\firstnamelastname\Documents\Adobe\After Effects 2022\User Presets
I see other presets I've created in CC 2019 here:
Local Drive\Users\firstnamelastname\Documents\Adobe\After Effects CC 2019\User Presets
Did the location change? Or is it not possible to create .aom files anymore?
I'm not sure if .aom is still around, but I would just make a .ffx preset if you can. It is very easy to share, people can just drag it into there presets folder.
I'm looking for a render preset - not an animation preset - any ideas?
I apologize, render presets are usually .epr or .mpbs files I think. You can locate them in C:\Users\[name]\Documents\Adobe\Adobe Media Encoder\22.0\Presets
.epr files are usually created via Media Encoder and/or Premiere... whereas .aom files are presets for After Effects. I have tried to create one in Encoder and Premiere as epr and changed the extension to aom with no luck. I have also tried to import an epr into After Effects and it does not work.
to add - my presets are not in the folder you highlighted - hence my post here! any other suggestions?
If you are rendering inside AE, then I assume you mean to create a render settings preset. I found away to do this with .ars files. Add something to your render queue and use your render settings on this comp. Then go to Edit > Templates > Render Settings and you can click "Save All" and save the .ars file to somewhere accessible. Then you can transport this file and people can use it the same way you saved it, instead clicking "Load".
