I have old Red Giant Plugins that are still showing up in my after effects effects panel. I got rid of them years ago but its still showing up in my effects panel. They are not in the plugins folder. I have the new versions of Red Gaint installed, so now there are duplicates of every Red Giant effect in the panel. The old versions and the new versions.

Does anyone know how to delete old plugins that still appear in after effects?

Thank you!

Hmmm. In a Terminal window, type this:sudo find / -iname *particular* -printIt will take a while and search your whole computer, but should find your Particular plug-in wherever it is.

Double-check again. there may still be duplicates in an invisible plug-in cache/ MediaCore folder inside one of the mysterious Adobe folders.

On Mac, the plug-ins should be installed in:

/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/7.0/MediaCore

 In Finder you can use Go > Go To Folder… and paste that path in.

It's not in that folder. Thats why this is super confusing! I can't even do a computer-wide search for it.

I've even reset the program to factory settings and they still pop up. I feel like I can't be the only one who has this issue...
