So many times I've downloaded Plug-ins and haven't been able to find them afterwards; it's become a frustrating practice for me in the past as well as other users I've talked to.  The key is the location of the Plug-ins folder.  Because of the variety of plug-ins available out there, all plug-ins do not install in the same manner; it's basically your job to move them to the correct spot.

The correct path to place your plug-ins is HD > Library > Application Support > Final Cut Pro System Support > Plug-Ins

Another important point regarding plug-ins that so many users tend to forget is the fact that you have to restart Final Cut Pro after you've installed your plug-in, otherwise it will not appear in Final Cut.
