How hard is it to sell plugins?

Hi, I'm a compositor/editor (and a VJ on weekends) I had an idea for a really handy plugin strike me today, infact it's the second editing plugin I have thought of. It's being a few years since I've done any coding, but I am contemplating having a look into the sdk and having a go. I'm wondering before I spend the time and effort on it, is there any real way to get them out there? I know of www.toolfarm.com, I'm not expecting to make more fortune or anything, just wondering if it is possible to make enough to justify the time?

    Hi Jim,

     

    Another site is http://aescripts.com.  And the Adobe Exchange panel allows in-app purchases, although as of Premiere Pro CS6 this is a separate download and install.

     

    You may also want to post this question on the AE SDK forum too.  And if you are looking at building an effect plug-in for Premiere Pro, make sure to start from the AE SDK.

     

    Cheers,

    You may also want to refer to the Premiere Pro plug-ins page here: http://www.adobe.com/products/premiere/extend.displayTab4.html

    ... to see if there is any overlap with other plug-ins, and to make sure that your idea isn't something that is already built.
