My question is very generic and I know that it could trigger a long discussion ... I'm in love with Video Copilot Plugins, and for many years I follow the company in their fantastic products. If I wanted to create similar plugins, what tools should I use for programming? With what language they are written? And for the graphic interface on AE?

hi Leandro! welcome to the forum!
the AE sdk is in C. you can work with whatever language you want, but
eventually, the calls to the AE API will be in C/C++.
the SDK is shipped with visual studio project for windows, and xcode for
effect controls window and comp window overlay graphics are created using
the drawbot suite supplied by the AE SDK.
I have tried downloading the SDK and opened the Visual Studio project file for one of their sample plugins, but I don't know how to implement it into After Effects to debug the code and understand how everything works can you please help me?
Hi, i just found this topic.. im interested too,...
There are a few tutorials on youtube about getting started with the SDK in Visual Studio and Xcode. There are also paid ones on fxphd.com.
Thank you, James!
