• Step 1: To get setup with Universe, you'll first need to setup a Maxon Account.
If you already have an account, proceed onto the next step. If you haven't got an account, go ahead and set one up. All that's needed is an email and a password to get started.
• Step 2: Close any and all host applications.
Host applications (After Effects, Premiere, FCP X, etc.) shouldn't be open when plugins are installed into them, otherwise errors can occur or plugins won't show up.
• Step 3: Next, download, run, and sign into the Maxon App.
This will install the Maxon App, a program used to manage all of your Maxon installations. You'll sign in using the same email you'd used in step one.
• Step 4: Click Install next to Universe
This will auto-detect any and all compatible hosts on your system and install into them automatically. Installation may take 5-10 minutes to complete on some systems.
