We finally have a dedicated place where you can download free plug-ins, share your own plugin design, and be able to sell your plugin to the world of iClone users in the near future.

I just downloaded six of these great looking plugins.
Apologies, I'm really confused.
Where do I store the plugins?
I just read this post and got even more confused - "Download the special version of iClone (zip.)".
Is there any documentation that explains why you need to download another version of iClone, a bit more detailed than this post.
I have taken a look, but just getting more and more confused.
Thanks

Sorry to say this, but I just watched the “motion clip sizer” video and could not follow it at all. Everything flashed by far too fast, the graphics don’t work for a tutorial and with no commentary I’m afraid I have no idea what was actually going on and therefore why I need this plug-in. Normally I’m pretty good at following tutorials, but this was beyond me. Given RL normally do a great job with tutorials I’m surprised they would kick-off this new feature with this, even though it was obviously not made by them. Sorry to sound so negative, but....

I encountered the same problem and resolved it as follows:

1 - create a folder with a short name at the root of your disk (ex: pyzip073)
2 - download or copy the file Python_API_073_for_iClone_741 in this folder
3 - now you can unzip the file without any problem
4 - Execute the Special Version of iClone in \ Python_API_073_for_iClone_741 \ Bin64 \ iClone.exe

That video is an ad. Quick tutorial here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qrHY2wEXVDQ

Added subtitle on both videos to give a bit more information.

You store the plugins in "E:\Program Files\Reallusion\iClone 7 Dev\Python_API_073_for_iClone_741\Bin64\OpenPlugin"
Each plugin in OpenPlugin should have a own folder.

You need the special iClone dev version because it got the newest python API. Think of it like a Beta or developer version. The stable iclone 7 don't have access to that API yet. And the plugin that require it use features in the latest Python API. So if you try run the plugin in the stable iclone it wont work. So you need the beta/developer version to run the plugin.

Do I need to uninstall iClone 7, before installing the Beta?

You don't need. They are independent.
