Speaking in general...

What was wrong with the old system? Downloading files off a site or built-in updates worked just fine.

Adobe/Autodesk/everyone has these stupid managers to handle updates, are more-or-less required and full of ads and upsells for services (Adobe nags me weekly to buy fonts).

I can’t explain it, but I actually like the Adobe manager. Maybe I changed a setting to be less naggy.

Red Giant, who makes After Effects filters, is the obnoxious one for me. It auto-runs whenever it feels like it. Drives me up the wall. Though they released a new version which seems better.

To be fair, it was nice to have the demo right there for some filters I suddenly needed, but that ended up forcing me into a $300 per year subscription.
