When I started making plugins for C4D there was no such thing as a User Folder. The one that's in the hidden AppData folder in Windows. And now we're supposed to put our plugins in this new User Folder.
But I confess that I've never done that. Because I'm a creature of habit. And once I get comfortable with something. I don't usually change my habit unless there's a darn good reason to change.
So here I am years later.
I've created just about every type of plugin there is. Including custom libraries. And I've never had a problem with having my plugins in the Program Folder where they've always been in older versions.
*I'm also still using R13 if that matters.
So I'm wondering what's the difference (if any) between these two locations for storing plugins?
As far as I can see. They are working equally as well in either folder. And I don't see any reason or benefit to stop putting them in the Program Folder where I've always put them.
