Before I go and buy, just need to know (and this might be a dumb question). I use Premiere 6 as my base editing system. Is ALAMb compatible with Premiere 6? Will I run into any problems with this, or can I easily use these effects in my cuts?

Inker- They run independantly of one another. Anything you do in Premiere, as long as it is saved in a recognizeable format by ALAMDV (AVI, Quicktime), can be opened and read within ALAMDV. Much like a jpeg you create and modify in Paintshop Pro can be modified in Photoshop.

Thanks for the quick answer. I see what you are refering to now. How about ease of use? I mean, I do my lightsaber effects now using rotoscoping in photoshop and they look great, but take a while (30 frames x 1 minute) can be quite a bit for longer clips. Is this program easier and fasyer then that? BTW, do you know where I can get the sound for the sabers to add to my audio?

alamdv is much quicker than rotoscopin thru photoshop. Once u learn the hotkeys and little tricks its quite fast. i love what alamdv can do.
Far as the sounds go, goto http://www.theforce.net
they have a zip file full of light saber sounds its about 8.5 meg. its got most any saber sound you might need. thats all ive ever needed for mine.

MUCH EASIER THEN FRAME BY FRAME!!! Last year in school a friend (Sidewinder) and I made a movie - and I was in charge of doing the lasers n' friends. Except I did it with filmstrips -
ALAMDV is way better and will save hours of un-needed work (Boy was I mad when I found out about ALAMDV!!) I wasted 2 months on the lightsabers!!! YEAh!!

if the link doesnt work. go to fanfilms main. then go to postproduction on the left hand menubar. then click on lightsaber fx
should be 7.9 meg its about 40 files once u unzip it.
hope this helps, and may the fx be with u always.
