Hey, guys, it's me again...

This time I have the problem that I can't insert the effect 'magnify'. No matter where I go, everything else works.

Do you know what I have to do?

Greetings

Since you're ignoring the expression error Rick pointed out, I will as well.  So apart from that...First of all you're not even applying the Magnify effect you're trying to apply a text preset.On top of that you seem to be trying to apply it to a composition.So.....?????

All I can see from your screenshot is that you have an expression error. Get rid of that, select a layer, then double click Magnify in the Effects And Presets panel.

If that does not work create a new comp, add a solid, select the solid in the timeline then double click Magnify in the Effects and Presets Panel or drag it to the layer in the timeline or comp. If that works then there is something going on in your main comp that you have not explained or shown us.

If that does not work, save, close AE, reboot, and try again. If it still does not work, reset your preferences.

If that does not work show us a screenshot that shows all modified properties of the layer giving you problems. Just press the U key twice, PrintScreen and paste the screenshot to the forum so we can see what you are up against.

I can see that.

Forget about your audio visualizer video.

Learn how to use After Effects.  https://helpx.adobe.com/after-effects/tutorials.html

Do the projects that the tutorials tell you do.  They're designed to teach you After Effects.

And no, I don't have team viewer.

So It just occurred to me that you actually ARE trying to apply a text animation preset to text.  It's not working because your trying to drop it on a composition.  You have to apply it to text...hence the term "text preset".

You posted a video of you trying to apply a text preset to a composition and claimed it was a video if you trying to apply the magnify effect and it not working.  So for sure something is not working correctly.

Also the image you shared is 480 x 278.  If you share another screen shot make sure it's large enough that we can see. Minimum 1280 x 720 but 1920 x 1080 is even better
