Applescript vs. Plug-In


I have a solution that needs to perform file management.  (File Copy, File Rename, File Move, File Delete, List Folders, List Files in Folder, Select Files, Launch external applications, etc.)  This appears to be beyond the capacity of FMPA script capabilities.

I've seen a number of plug-ins that provide such capability with varying degrees of ease of use, documentation, cost, etc.

Am I generally better off using such plug-ins, or alternatively developing some skills working with Applescript?
