About Pseudo Effect Installer

Installation Requirements

In order to install Pseudo Effect Builder, you must have Adobe Air installed on your system and must be running
either Windows or Mac. You should also have After Effects installed for creation and testing of presets and
pseudo effects.

What Does the Pseudo Effect Installer Do?

The Pseudo Effect Installer takes care of all the manual file editing that has to be done to add a Pseudo Effect. It
also moves and organizes preset files in the After Effects directory. In addition to installing pseudo effects, it also
helps keep them up to date. Depending on the developer, the Pseudo Effect installer can automatically check for
new versions of pseudo effects that you’ve installed and let you know if a newer version is available.

Getting Started with the Pseudo Effect Installer:

To get started using the Pseudo Effect Installer, you’ll first import one or more pseudo effects. Pseudo effects have
the file extension ‘.pseudo’. There are three ways to bring the .pseudo files into the installer.

Drag and Drop

Dragging and dropping is the easiest method for importing your pseudo effects. Just drag and drop the
.pseudo files on to the Import Area. You can drop multiple pseudo files at once.
If you are on a Windows machine and running the installer as an administrator because of UAC, the drag
and drop feature may not be available to you. In this case you can use the import dialog option for importing.

Import Dialog

You can also import pseudo effects using a standard open dialog. To bring up the dialog, simply click on the
Import Area, or go to File>Open.

Open Pseudo Files Directly

Double clicking on a .pseudo file will launch the Pseudo Effect Installer and import the selected file.


When you are ready to install all of the pseudo effects listed in the Info Table, simply click the ‘Install’ button and
the Pseudo Effect Installer will get to work. If everything is correct and compatible, all of the pseudo effects on the
list should then have a status of ‘Installed’ with a green check mark.
