ZXP installer may not be installing the AtomX extension correctly. Perhaps you have any error when you open AtomX in After Effects. Either way, there’s an alternative method to installing the AtomX Extension.

PC

  1. In windows explorer navigate to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\CEP\extensions
  2. Delete any Atom folder within the extensions folder. If there is no Atom folder, that’s okay.
  3. Go to the AtomX-Extension folder in the download you received from our website.
  4. Rename the “AtomX 3.0.0.zxp” to AtomX 3.0.0.zip” (Just changing .zxp to .zip).
  5. Unzip the renamed AtomX 3.0.0.zip folder.
  6. Copy the AtomX 3.0.0 folder
  7. Paste the AtomX 3.0.0 folder in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\CEP\extensions folder.
  8. Done!
