I am developing a CEP extension for AfterEffects.
Where should I store user data?
Or is there an API for store the data?

Thank you.

It's a case of "Whatever you prefer". Most scripts will simply generate a text file in their host directory, but of course you can create your own preference settings just as well or create a more complex method of storing files in other folders, using a connection to a database engine or remote URL.

i agree with Mylenium. you could add data to AE's pref files, but it offers absolutely no advantage to you or the user over just writing it where ever you prefer.
