I no longer have AE 2017 installed on my system and don't remember a lot of the specific issues I was having other than I was never able to control any scenes or models. I was not able to adjust anything from the parameter controls and it crashed a lot. Other than just getting a default scene to initiate I wasn't able to do much else.
Would be more than happy to try again with a demo that works with a current version of AE! As per original post will an updated plugin for AE 2018 be coming? Link you posted is also for an out of date AE 2017.
Just really excited about this plugin but until I can actual try out a working version with my current apps and system it might as well be vaporware
Anyway, keep up the work! It will be ready when its ready.
