Ok I will start off my picking out a plugin and downloading it. I'll take the flaming bullet plugin by MGW which can be accessed here http://fxhome.com/alamdv2/plugins/info_cache/plugin1449.html
Next I'll download the file. Once the file is downloaded open the folder and go to the images file. When you open the images file you will see all of the images for this select plugin.
Then take all of the images and import them into your NLE. Once you do this speed up all of the images. I use Windows Movie Maker because it is easiest for me to speed up clips. If you do this in Windows Movie Maker do the following.
1. Import all of the images.
2. Add the maximum amount of speed ups to one clip. Then copy that effect and paste in on the other images. This will speed up the process.
3. Once that is done export the video into an avi. format.
4. If you are still editing on Windows Movie Maker you will have to re-encode your footage into Quicktime through a different program.
I Know that other programs such a Vegas and I think premiere will encode in Quicktime. That is all effectslab takes as stock footage.
Once this is done you can just open your clip that needs the effect and load your video you just made as stock footage. This may be time consuming but it will work for you until the plugins are turned into stock footage.
Hope this helps you guys until the plugins are changed.
