Only one question, some of the plugins have a "blue" background that when I ket them out against black vidoe in premire and open in effectslab it is washed out to the point it is too transparent to use (I tried all the tricks in some of the other posts and can't get it to work properly)
Could one of you fine gentlmen give me your thoughts on converting (with premire) the plugins with a colored background? The specific plugin I was trying to convert was the wings animation (wanted to screw around with Effectslab masking system)http://fxhome.com/alamdv2/plugins/list.php?id=0&limit=25&cat=67&sortby=1&order=0&display=1&id=25

Its important to note that you should only convert AlamDV2 plugins for personal use. The copyright of the plugins belongs to FXhome and only registered users of AlamDV2/EffectsLab are allowed to download them.
Feel free to convert them for personal use, but any form of distribution (even to other FXhome/AlamDV2/EffectsLab users) will invalidate your licence.
We'll get the official converted plugins up as soon as possible.
