How do I uninstall my products?

  • Updated

If you have the Maxon App installed onto your system, you can uninstall products* through it by selecting Uninstall under the product's options.


If files remain on your system, you can use the uninstaller located in these folders:

Windows:  Program files > Maxon > Tools
(Must be run as an admin)

Mac:  Library > Application Support > Maxon > Tools


To uninstall without the Maxon App:

  • On a Windows system
    • Head into the Control Panel's 'Add/Remove Programs' section and select whichever suite of plugins you wish to remove.
  • On a Mac system
    • Unfortunately manually removing the plugin files is the only alternative to the Maxon App by using the file paths below.

To manually uninstall on a Mac:

Remove the files from the host's file directories:

  • Final Cut Pro/Motion:
    • MacHD/Library/Plug-ins/FxPlug/
    • MacHD/Library/Application Support/Final Cut Pro System Support/Plugins/
  • After Effects/Premiere Pro:
    • MacHD/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/7.0/MediaCore/
    • MacHD/Applications/After Effects/Plug-ins/
  • Avid:
    • MacHD/Library/Application Support/Avid/AVX2_Plug-ins/

*Cinema 4D requires manual removal by deleting the Maxon Cinema 4D RXX folder from the Applications Folder.
