I’ve baught the PI-Plugin (permanent license) in nov.2021 and installed /used it since then.
Now I want to update from 15.0.2 to the announced 15.5.
I downloaded the installers from my account, installed them, and it seems that the free standalone version is now working with the new version.
BUT, how to update the Resolve17 plugin in OSX?
I also installed/updated to Continuum 22.5 … but now ?? where/how can i force an update from the registered/installed version to the new one ???
What app should i use for ???
Currently , it seems that I have still the 15.0 plugin running…(at least I cannot determine anywhere which version the running plugin has !?.. I have only 1 OFX-Plugin showing up, instead of multiple as I have seen in screenshots… all the 3D Options are missing)
Any advice would be appreciated as I cannot find any explanation about this all over the internet
Thank you all for the helpfull responses.
I followed all the steps and installed everything related to 22.5 (standalone, emitterpack,continuum2022.5.
what I see now in resolve is showing here in the screenshots:
launching the PI-interface or the webinterface from within Resolve17, it loads obviously the right version .
I am only unsure, because in my case I see only 1 OFX-Particle-Illusion effect as always (see screenshot), and other customers in this forum have shown screenshots where I see around 5 different ones , for the new features, especially the 3D options…
and there is now indication inside Resolve which PlugInVersion or which Continuum is currently installed (at least I cannot see it)…
I believe you should only see BCC Particle Illusion – it is the only BCC particle plugin that is licensed (you said you bought a Particle Illusion license). The other particle options (Particle Emitter 3D for instance) would show only if you bought a BCC Particles Unit license.
BCC Particle Illusion is the only plugin that’s currently being updated – all of the other BCC particle plugins are older.
(Note that there’s no reason to have Particle Illusion Standalone installed if you have BCC Particle Illusion.)
Yes, you are right. Because of the lack of any explanation how to install the paid plugin, i found somewhere the hint, that the plugin has to be installed by the CC-aplication-manager. So i did, was asked for my serial, and then apparently this BCC installed the plugin in the background.
There was an option saying, delete any unlicensed FX … what i did , to prevent my system from beeing cluttered.
To clearyfy… i have only the payed plugin for particle illusion. Based on the announcements and advertisements, i understood that these new features of PI ,f.e. 3D-emiiers and fluids, are part of every PI now, free and paid plugin version.
That‘s why i‘m interesred in…. else i would use and go back to my trapcode-particular suite, which i already own.
