# Installation

  • Download ZXP Installer from aescripts + aeplugins
  • Drag Anubis.zxp into ZXP Installer
  • Close and re-open After Effects, Photoshop, Animate, and Premiere
  • Navigate to the top Window menu, Extensions > Anubis

Manual install

If you follow all the Ae instructions and Anubis still isn't showing up in the AE Window>Extensions menu, do a manual install. You didn't do anything wrong, it just happens sometimes wth extensions.

  • Change the extension of the Anubis.zxp file to .zip. It might give you a dialog warning about changing the file type but ignore it.
  • Unzip this file to get a folder called Anubis
  • Navigate to the Adobe extensions folder:
    • Mac: /Users/**username**/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEP/extensions/
    • Win: C:/Users/**username**/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/CEP/extensions/
  • Copy this Anubis folder to the /extensions/ folder
    • Note: If you don't see these folders, go ahead and create them
  • Restart Ae and look in the top Window menu for Extensions > Anubis

# Extension missing in Photoshop

Missing the Window > Extensions menu in Photoshop in CC 2022? Adobe is slowly switching to a new plugin system called UXP, and Extensions are disabled by default in new versions of Ps.

Enabling Extensions

Open Photoshop prefs

Open the Photoshop preferences > Plugins
Enable extensions
Enable both:
  • Allow Extensions to Connect to the Internet
  • Load Extensions Panels ← most important

Rosetta mode

But wait, are those options greyed out? Are you on Apple Silicon? You will need to activate Rosetta mode to enable Extensions in Photoshop.

Extensions disabled
Show Photoshop info
  • Close Photoshop
  • Navigate to the Photoshop application
  • Right click > get Info or CMD+I
Enable Rosetta mode

Enable the checkbox Open using Rosetta. Restart Photoshop.
