Dont know if this has been asked, but is there a way to make it so, like when a lightsaber clash occurs, a section of room flashes, or something like that, useing FX Lab? Thanks.

EL is not the right program for this kind of effect.

However, Chromanator is perfect for adding artificial lighting enhancements to your movies. Maybe check out the demo?

Cheers,

Or use a strobe light or camera flash. Disposable works great. Though it may not be big enough or show up enough for anything but dark lighting. Give it a go and if that doesn't work out, try Arktic's solution. Because I am guessing you don't want to spend $100 on one effect. Though, Chromanator is useful for many more things.

Ahh, ok. Thanks. I have a Strobe Light, so ill temporarily stick with that. I guess its just another reason to buy Chromanator.

What about colored lighting? Is it always the default yellow/white?

Yes, I think you can do this by adding a mask to your video clip, and turn the brighness up a bit on the frames you want to be brighter. Remember to add a lot of feather...

I think this should work...

Read the whole topic before you post. Arktic had posted a link to a tutorial explaining how to do this months ago.
