when i downloaded mbl presets it appears in the custom looks folder but in after effects it wont appear and i cant find the preset within ae . When i try opening the preset file by its own ae says "unsupported file type or extension" . Someone help please thanks
You are misunderstanding how this works. MB Looks can only be applied from within the Looks editor. It's a proprietary thing that has nothing to do with the standard AE animation presets.
So... how do you fix the problem exactly?
did you ever fix it? i have the same issue
hi, when you press edit after adding it to your clip, at the top there will be a settings icon and if you press that it should let u import your presets.
Same I dont know if I need a plug in or something.
Go to (C:)/ Program Files x86/ Looksbuilder/ Looks
And you should be able to accesss the folder!
hello i did that already but the presets still dont work, any advice?
Hi, did you figured it out ? if not i know how to fix the issue. one year later...
hi. when you press edit after adding it to your clip, at the top there will be a settings icon and if you press that it should let u import your presets. hope this helps ! 🙂
hi, could you please explain how exactly to do this? mine is not working still, it doesn't let me import them.
i was having the same exact issue and none of these comments made sense. if u still need help I can post how to fix it on youtube. its a really easy fix. took me weeks to figure it out though.
It would be great if you could post a video on youtube how to fix this issue!
What was the fix? Is there a link to the Youtube video? Thanks!
please help me, i don't know how to fix it yet
Search for Magicbullet Looks on window, right click on it and press " open fileway" then you will come to magicbullet again, you press "open fileway" again.
- Remove "Looksbuilder"
- Copy "Magic bullet looks"
- Rename the new copy to Looksbuilder.
- Close and open AE.
Excuse my poor english, hope this helps!
My edits work in the Magic Bullet window but when I press the check mark to bring them into After Effects only the diffusion effect shows and nothing else. Anyone have the fix yet?
I just updated magic bullet on my laptop and im having the same issue. I have a previous version of MB on my imac and it works just fine. Could it be a bug in the latest MB? The effects look like they are working in the MB editor but when I apply it just makes everything darker with some diffusion.
I've uninstalled the newer version 15 and installed the older version 14.3 instead and all the presets come back as they should. Hopefully they will figure out what is going on and fix it. I've submitted a support ticket a week ago but no response yet.
Had exactly the same issue, presets weren't loading in. Rolled back to 14.3 like cendrick said with the Maxon Installer and now they're all there.
Clearly a bugged latest issue, hopefully it's fixed in another update.
We are all dumb lol
If its a preset all you have to do is move it into the preset folder and drag into the adjustment layer
-copy and paste the coloring into
windows: C:\Users\name\OneDrive\Documents\Adobe\After Effects 2020\User Presets
-then restart after effects and put it in the adjustment layer
(found all this out after hours of trying to get the older version and almost smashing my computer)
let me know if it worked for anyone
didn't help unfortunately
i have the exact same problem as you.
i downloaded MBL last week and up till now when i click on “Edit”
no tab opens
i thought maybe I downloaded a wrong version but no
i downloaded about 4 more versions and they gabe me the same results.
i’m almost crying now..
i even installed AE2020 and see if it’s because ae 2022 is not compatible but i was wrong...
it still didn’t work on AE 2020 and 2022
