The file extension AIP is used for plug-in files of the vector drawing software Adobe Illustrator. With plugins, new functionalities can be added to the software. For Illustrator to use a plug-in, the AIP file must be copied to the 'Plug-insExtensions' or 'Add-ModulesIllustrator Filter' in the Illustrator program directory.
It should be noted that plugins do not work independently of the operating system and in some cases work only up to certain Illustrator versions. In addition, the extension AIP is assigned to a directory and not to a file on the Apple Mac. For the installation of a plugin, therefore, the entire AIP directory must be copied.
