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.
