Thanks for helping!

quoteElement 3D not listed in the Effects menu in After Effects, what should I do?

Possible Solutions:  
  1. Run the full Element 3D installer (not the patch) and install it while logged on as Administrator and not a user-account to avoid permissions issues. 
  2. Run the full Element 3D installer, uncheck any version of After Effects that are selected, check "Custom", 32bit or 64bit(64bit is only for After Effects CS5 or later), and then browse your Desktop as the location.

Find the VideoCopilot folder that should be on your Desktop and manually drag it into your Adobe After Effects Plug-ins folder. Then try to open the plug-in again in After Effects.
