    There's a folder called Plug-ins and inside that there are usually a number of sub-folders, where effects and transitions are, so depending which category you want your plug-in to appear under you have to place your plug-in in that folder.

    What Plug Ins are you talking about in particular, there are differences with some. Most have an exe file that will install the files to the correct location as long as you have installed AE to the default location.

    they came in a zip folder so i have to extract them into a different one but which one is the correct one??

    What plug ins are they?

    Default The top-level Plug-ins folder is fine.

    On Windows, the default location of the Plug-ins folder is this:

    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CS3\Support Files\Plug-ins

    This might be a little different for you if you installed to a non-default location, but the Adobe After Effects CS3\Support Files\Plug-ins part should be the same.

    You can put plug-ins anywhere in that Plug-ins folder. It doesn't matter where, since After Effects scans the Plug-ins folder and all subfolders when it starts.

    For more information, see the "About plug-ins" section of After Effects Help on the Web.

    I refuse to ask 'What Plugins'? again, but if we knew what plugins you were trying to install it might be easier to help you
