Hi all, I am debating wether to get this or not. If I make a film how would I out sound in the background, Music and effects e.g. lightsaber? How how do we make bullets if i was to make a combat film?

The standard way of using post-production tools such as Alamdv, is to edit your movie in a standard editing program (premier, final cut pro, whatever) then export ONLY the sections you want to put effects onto, as an uncompressed avi or mov.
Import that file into Alamdv and add your effects. Render them, which saves the section back to the same file, then recombine your rendered file with the sound track in your editing program.
Alamdv is a graphics program so is only able to render (save) movies without sound.

Exactly how you add sound depends on your editing program.
The general concept is to take sound clips (which might be of a bullet hitting a wall, or the hum of a lightsaber, or a line of dialogue) and place them one-by-one at appropriate places in the movie. This way you gradually build up the soundscape.
The sound in most feature films is mostly 'artificial' - even footsteps and dialogue tend to be added in post-production. Exactly what approach you take is up to you, and what kind of results you are after.
Check out the Lord of the Rings 4-disc DVDs, the Terminator 2 'Ultimate' edition 2-disc DVD and the Master and Commander 2-disc DVD for some very interesting documentaries on sound editing and recording.

Any editing suite capable of exporting footage uncompressed, will be fine for creating footage for importing into Alamdv2, as far as i know.
You get force by buying products, writing posts which people like, creating plugins, and submitting movies to the cinema section of this website.

As an owner of a product by CSB, you will see a link to "submit a movie", when you log into the website. You have to host the movie yourself, but its free to add the movie to FXHome's cinema.

CSB-Digital are company that run this website, and make the products associated with it - Alamdv, Chromanator and Digigrade.
The people who have movie logos do them either by making a picture in photoshop/paint shop pro/etc then importing the image into their editing software and placing it for a few frames, or they make their own in a 3d app or other animation software. I don't really know to be honest - i'd suggest you ask around; there are countless other threads in the forum with people offering to make logos or explaining how.
