Twitch won't open.

Hi! Sorry for the crap title, but I've downloaded Twitch as a plug-in for After Effects. Except when I try to open it it says:

After Effects error: Can't import file ''Twitch.rar'': unsupported filetype or extension.

So, originally when it first downloaded I had to change where it would be opened to but none of them worked. Right now I changed the location to After Effects even though it still doesn't work.

I'm kind of new to After Effects, so I've pretty much been following tutorials on how to download Twitch as a plug-in and in every tutorial Twitch is downloaded as a folder. But it's not working for me?

I get Twitch from here:

Thank you if anyone can help me resolve this!!!

After you purchase it from Video Copilot I'm sure they could help you out.

.rar is a file compression format - not a plugin format. Twitch doesn't come from Video Copilot as a .rar file. I'm guessing you didn't get this copy of Twitch from Video Copilot. So, it's likely to have issues if it's not a legitimate version.
