I have a couple of third party .plugin files that I want to use with Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. However, double-clicking them doesn't install them, nor does Adobe help give any hints on where to put them.

The Premiere Pro application folder doesn't contain a Plug-Ins directory as I remember it.

Depending on your operating system, you need to put the files here:

  • Windows: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\Plug-Ins\CS6\MediaCore\

  • OS X: /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-Ins/CS6/MediaCore/

Copy them there, and don't forget to restart Premiere Pro to have them recognized.

It didn't work for me. But it did work when I installed in another folder. That is, Go to Adobe > Adobe Premiere Pro > Plug- ins > Common

Here you will see all those transitions, effects which are seen in 'Effects' while using the program. Paste all the plug-ins there.
