I believe that you would get access to the AlamDV2 plugins but to use them you would have to convert them to stockfootage for use in EffectsLab.

You cannot install plugins in the demo version of AlamDV2.

Even if you have the full (non-demo) version of AlamDV2, buying EffectsLab to access the plugins for AlamDV2, would be like buying an MSDN subscription to download Windows 3.11 - its absurd!

crackstone, you will have access, and the non animated ones work in EL already. The animated ones can be easily converted so you can use them in EL, plus EL has freehand masking, creates higher quality images, is much more stable, and more current. It is also supported and is coming out with tons of new visual effect generators, fully customizable, such as the lens flare generator.

Xcession, surely all of the stock created for Alam DV2 is worth far over $120, am I right? I mean, there are hundreds of explosions, muzzle stock, gun smoke, and other great things. On most stock footage providing websites single explosion stock costs over $200.
