Error plugin preset files are not allowed to export objects only functions. You may have seen this error when using a 3rd party preset in After Effects. You are seeing this error because the preset you are trying to use is not compatible with After Effects.
There are two ways to fix this problem:
-Option 1: Find a compatible preset
-Option 2: Manually edit the preset file
We will go over both options in this article. Option 1 is the easiest way to solve this problem, but it may not be possible if you can’t find a compatible preset. Option 2 requires you to have some basic coding knowledge, but it is usually the only way to fix this problem if you can’t find a compatible preset.
What are error pluginpreset files?
Error pluginpreset files are not allowed to export objects only functions. This error message appears when attempting to export an object from a pluginpreset file.
Why are they not allowed to export objects?
When you try to export an object from a pluginpreset file, the export happens immediately. However, since objects cannot be immediately executed, the export fails.
How can you work around this?
If you need to use exported objects in your plugin preset file, you can do so by using the “require” function. For example, to export an object from a plugin preset file, you would use the following:
This will work as long as the “./myPluginPresetFile.js” file exports an object with a property named “myObject”. If it does not, or if the file does not exist, an error will be thrown.
In conclusion, error pluginpreset files are not allowed to export objects only functions. If you are experiencing this error, it is recommended that you contact your roaster or coffee provider for assistance.
