how to know if an effect is 3rd Party? scripting

Hi guys! I have no idea how to know if an effect is an Built In effect or a 3rd Party effect... Is there a method to know that kind of information? I've already read the scripting guide but nothing...

What about checking the manual - if its in the manual its built in.

Ohhhhh, you mean during scripting run? Let the system check for 3rd party or native fx?

If I were trying to do this I might ;
1 - make a list of all the match names for all the built-in effects
2 - have my script find all the effects in the comp/project and their match names
3 - have my script tell me which match names found in the comp/project are NOT also found in the list of built-in match names
4 - and those would be the 3rd party effects
