After Effects scripts wont install.
« on: May 22, 2012, 07:03:09 PM »
We are using network user and local users on 10.6.7 and 10.7.2 and we have tried installing 6.3.4 GUI/Core and we never get the Qube scripts to appear in either 5/5.5/6. In case you haven't guessed we have done a lot of testing with version of OS and AFX. Why won't the AFX scripts install? I also can't find them anywhere on the systems after the install.

Any help is appreciated.

You need to have write permissions to the Scripts directory (eg. /Applications/Adobe After Effects CS5.5/Scripts) in order to install the Qube AR submission scripts.  Unfortunately, AfterEffects doesn't seem to use a user-based scripts directory, only the one under /Applications, which are usually read-only to non-root users.

I'm going to log a bug for this one; the GUI should automatically try and open the permissions up on that directory before it writes to it.

For now, you need to open/set the permissions manually from a Terminal window:

sudo chmod 777 /Applications/Adobe After Effects CS5.5/Scripts

(substitute CS6 for CS5.5 as applicable), then use the QubeGUI to install the scripts, then set the permissions back to read-only with

sudo chmod 755 /Applications/Adobe After Effects CS5.5/Scripts

We've tried that as well as trying to remove the receipts and re-installing the GUI and the scripts still don't install. Any chance there is a place where we can grab the current script and manually copy it?
