# Installation

  1. Download ZXP/UXP Installer from aescripts + aeplugins
  2. Drag Timelord.zxp into ZXP Installer
  3. Close and re-open After Effects, Photoshop, and Animate
  4. Navigate to the top Window menu, Extensions > Timelord

Manual install

If you follow all the Ae instructions and Timelord 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 with extensions.

  • Change the extension of the Timelord.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 Timelord
  • Navigate to the Adobe extensions folder:
    • Win: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\CEP\extensions\
    • Mac: /Users/**username**/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEP/extensions/
      • Open the /Library/ folder by switching to Finder and opening the top Go menu. Hold the Option key and Library will appear.
  • Copy this Timelord 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 > Timelord
