Hey there gekjas, welcome to the site. I am going to try and answer all of your questions, here we go.

Just for future reference, it would be best to do a quick look around the forums for topics you are thinking about posting. You should also try using the "search" feature of the forums. You just type in key words, such as your topic, or questions. Some do not take kindly to questions being asked repetitively. There are a few guide lines to follow when making posts. The big ones can be found here
. You will pick up on anything that is not in that list rather quickly the more you read other posts.
Let’s get to the questions.Q
: If I save a movie I take it, it also saves sound? A
: As of right now, only EffectsLab Dv
can save with sound. You have to make sure that your in and out frames are set to be the same when you render as they are in the original (un-edited) movie clip (as to keep the sound "lined" up with the clip). Chromanator, at this moment, can not render with the sound, but the second version (soon to be in the works) will most likely have this ability.Q
: Is there any way for me to import MPEG-movies into them? A
: As far as I am aware, no. I have only tested with EffectsLab, but there engine is similar in many ways, so I believe that if Chromanator could do this, EffectsLab could as well. (You would most likely have to convert your MPEG-files to avi. or mov.) Some body else most likely knows a few more details about that then I do. There are also topics on where to find converters, and how to convert files just using your NLE (N
: Can you also add sound to you movies? A
: These programs are not compositing programs. You would have to edit your sounds in your NLE (what ever you may use). It is always best to add your effects, then the sounds. You should always try to match your sound to your graphic, not your graphic to your sound.Q
: (Effectlab only) Are there no other 'effect options' apart form lightsaber, muzzle flash and the other exploding thing (keep forgetting the name) cuz there are no others in the demo. A
: The effects, as of now, are "Neon Light", "Muzzle Flash", and the "Particle Engine". So far, the final product has not been released. This means that the FxHome
team are still adding features, and working out bugs. A list of what is to come can be found here
, along with answers to other questions about the program you may have.
I hope this answers all of your questions, and puts your mind at ease.
Again, welcome to the site.
