I'm sort of self teaching myself as I go and I have downloaded I believe my first "plug-in" if I'm using that term correctly. Perhaps "extensions" I had to activate an allow extensions option.
It was a "pack" of free graphics from a company called Motion Factory. It seems like it was just a bunch of full on AE files, like projects, that you can then select and plop right in to any project and tweak. But there are a TON I'm not gonna use. Will it affect the usability of the plugin if I delete the files I don't use? Can I transfer this all to the D drive on my laptop for storage or does it have to be on the C drive with the software to 'find' it?
I'm good with software but if you can't tell I'm not all that tech savy when it comes to how computers work within themselves. But my C drive is almost full and AE is giving me warnings that the disk is full and the cache is full and it wont work correctly because of it.
