Hi there,

 

Running the latest version of AE on Mac. Is there a way to transfer my workspace and scripts over to my laptop? I tried simply ⌘C+V the entire Scripts/Script UI Panels over but that was unsuccessful.

 

I have dozens of scripts that I use - to manually install each one would take a long time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You may not be able to avoid proper re-installs. In particular some panel-based tools create custom sub-folders and scatter sub-scripts across different default AE folders due to how AE loads these panels in general. Of course on the face of it just copy & paste-ing should still work, it will likely just require to dig for more than one single folder.

I have a bunch of custom presets stored in a dropbox folder. I created an alias to that folder and put the alias in the directory (folder) used when you create and save an animation preset to the default location. On a Mac, that folder is the User/Documents/Adobe/After Effects 2000/User Presents folder

 

AE keeps track of that folder through updates and when installing new versions. I do the same thing with the folders used for Scripts and any other folders that are used to store things that I might need. My preference files are also synced. No matter where I am my machines are always all synced up. The only thing that is not automatic are the updates and new installations of 3rd party effects and scripts that require installers.
