It should be working fine? Make sure you have Java installed. If your using Firefox try quickly using Internet Explorer.

If you guys look closely at the welcome screens for the new programs (mainly vLab)...you can see some of the following:

Electric Mans 8000 (waser)
Project One (er-no)
Klut's Birthday (lol)

That was the so-called "easter eggs" that were in there. It gave me a good laugh and I thoroughly enjoyed my first and very memorable FXHome chat.

Yes, they will both be released on the same date. Which means that mac users, like me, will not have the usual wait for the mac version.

YES!!!

About the contest... When is the due date? Because if it is before 2006, it will be WAY too soon of a deadline, and if it is after 2006, do we still get VLAB discounts if we don't win? Because aren't there upgrade discounts or something? I just want to get it, but getting it now would make the contest pointless, and if I lose, I don't get the discount.

Prizes:
1st place- VisionLab
2nd place- Your choice of EffectsLab Pro or Compostie Lab Pro
3rd place- Your choice of EffectsLab DV or Compostie Lab DV

So far that's all the FXhome Team has realeased at this point.

Well, if you really want to, they never did rule out Star Wars fan films, but they did seem like they wanted some new ideas.

" it could be about a sport, or a person you respect, or a movie, or a song, or a book, a place you've visited...
it's up to you
but we want to see what you are a fan of, and why
why do YOU love?
what are YOU obsessed with?" - Quote from the Transcript

So it has to be a fanfilm? It cannot be based on original material?

From reading the transcript, I would have to say yes, but they did leave it open for a lot of potential. Books, movies, sports, people, songs, places visited..... using any one of those that they listed would still leave you quite a bit of room to develop an original story based on them.

They should be releasing the requirements shortly, so we should all know the specifices very soon.

It can be a fan film on whatever you are a fan of.. so it could be about your mum or dad, your street, your school, a tv show, a film, a director, a sport - just about anything which you think is great and inspires you.

There will be more information soon, but I just wanted to clear something up. If you were to purchase one of our programs then win the same program (or better) in the competition we would refund your original purchase - thats fair isn't it? biggrin
