How to get plugin install folder

Hi gang;

 

Is there a function that returns the After Effects plugin install folder WITHOUT the plugin filename, in Xcode Mac OS?

 

I'm looking for something along the lines of

"/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/[version]/MediaCore"


Or wherever the plugin that was launched resides?

 

Thanks,

Richard

I don't think so, since organizing things into folders is basically just a function of housekeeping, not a technical requirement. A lot of that is merely determeined by the installer and the associated config files/ database. You would likely have to check those or AE's own plug-in loading log rather than try to figure things out from within the AEGP or whatever.
