How did you install the plug-in? I am not using that plug-in, but all plug-ins need to be installed either in zhe System library, directly on your Macintosh HD:
or in your User Library in your Home Folder:
Have you checked these install locations?

- Have you closed and re-started Aperture? Sometimes Aperture does not recognize newly installed plug-ins.
- How are you invoking the plug-in?
- Have you confirmed that the plug-in is installed in either your system library folder (a Finder folder) or in your home library folder (again, a Finder folder)? It should be in one of "Library/Application Support/Aperture/Plug-Ins/" or "/Users/yourname/Library/Application Support/Aperture/Plug-Ins/"

Thanks for your replies guys. It turned out that my Aperture was set to another users preferences so I couldn't administer it at all. Changed the preferences and admin ownership and it is all working fine now.

that explains a lot. It is usually best to install plug-ins and programs for all users by using an Administrator account when installing. That will prevent permission problems.
Is your Aperture application not installed in the Applications folder on your Macintosh HD?
I was puzzled, because your signature still is showing "Aperture 3.1.3". If that is true, you have missed many updates and bug fixes. The most recent Aperture version for "Mac OS X (10.6.8)" would be Aperture 3.2.4.
But Software Update will not show the updates, if Aperture is installed in a local Applications folder and not in the system wide "Applications" directly on your HD; also it should be named simply "Aperture" and not Aperture 3 or something similar.
