Supported versions of After Effects

Tested

Duik has been tested and is working with all versions of After Effects since CS6. That means it works correctly on: CS6 (11), CC (12), CC2014 (13), CC2015 (13.5), CC2017 (14), CC2018 (15), CC2019 (16).

Note: CS6 has a lot of issues with Script Panels like the one used by Duik. Duik will work on CS6, but you may have to close and re-open it often to fix the UI issues you may have… You also have to know that the performance is pretty poor with CS6.

Untested

Note that it may also work on CS4, CS5, and CS5.5 but we do not test it on these versions. Just try if you still use one of those.

Not supported

All versions before CS4 won’t be able to correctly run Duik, sorry! It’s time to update…

Installation

1 - Download Duik from the official website.

2 - Unzip the files you have downloaded.

3 - There are several ways to install Duik very easily:

a. Copy all the files to:

  • Windows: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CC\Support Files\Scripts\ScriptUI Panels\
  • Mac OS: /Applications/Adobe After Effects CC/Scripts/ScriptUI Panels
    You may need administrator privileges to install Duik this way. If you don’t have them, see the other ways below.

Warning

With the other installation methods, some features using third party tools, like transcoding sound when exporting to Adobe Audition, may not work correctly.

b. This method works only on the most recent versions of After Effects (since CC2018):

  • Open After Effects
  • Windows: Holding the [Alt] and [Shift] keys, drag and drop the file Duik Bassel.jsx onto the project panel.
  • Mac OS: Holding the [Options] and [Shift] keys, drag and drop the file Duik Bassel.jsx onto the project panel.

c. This method works only on the latest versions of After Effects (since CC2019):

  • Open After Effects
  • Use the File/Scritps/Install ScriptUI Panel... menu to select and install Duik Bassel.jsx.

4 - Restart After Effects and Duik will be available in the “Window” menu.

Without installation

You’ll always be able to run Duik without even installing it. This is a good way to use it if you do not have administrator privileges on an older version of After Effects.

  • Unzip all the files in any folder.
  • Launch After Effects, and start Duik via the File/Scripts/Run script file... menu.
