Download the zxp file. The zxp package has been tested with automated install methods like Anastasiy's Extension Manager or ZXP Installer.

After Effects plug-ins will have a plug-in .aex file and a pdf for documentation. The installer will extract .aex file to the mediacore directory – $mediacoreplug-ins\Prosya\ and the pdf to $userhomefolder/Documents/Prosya/

In windows – $mediacoreplug-ins looks like C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\Plug-ins\7.0\MediaCore and $userhomefolder/ looks like C:\Users\

After successful install, Prosya plug-ins will appear under the Prosya folder inside the ‘Effects' menu or under the ‘Effect & Presets' tab in After Effects. If automated install does not work, try the manual installation. Manual installation also works if the plug-in is distributed as a .zip file.

Install 7-zip or any similar unzip utility. Right Click on the .zxp or .zip and click 7-zip->Open Archive.

Double-click on Win/ directory to view the .aex file. Extract .aex file to the mediacore directory – for example, C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\Plug-ins\7.0\MediaCore

Double-click on Docs/ directory to view the .pdf file. Extract .pdf file to the Documents directory – for example, C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\
