Yes, sir. Go to the store, and under EL: PRO, it will say 'Upgrade To EffectsLab Pro : $60.18*'.

Hey all. I'm new here. I was just wondering what the difference is between EffectsLab DV and EffectsLab Pro. I was thinking of buying EffectsLab DV because its cheaper than the pro version. The product discriptions look the same.

Well, there are a few differenses. Pro has a little more features than DV, and can work with HD footage. Read more differenses here
If you can't descide, you should try both, the demos can be downloaded here.

Thanks for the info guys. I went ahead and purchased EffectsLab Pro earlier this morning and I am so glad that I did. Creating effects is so simple. I've been an avid Adobe After Effects user for quite sometime. But this peice of software is amazing. The muzzle flashes look so realistic. The fire presets that I looked at are really cool. Making fire in AE doesn't look real as the presets do. Now all my eyes are on CompositeLab Pro. Reason, I can never light a greenscreen correctly and CompositeLab Pro may be my ticket to start using greenscreens instead of rotoscoping.

Hey, congratulations with the purshase of EL Pro!!! biggrin I'm sure you'll be very happy about it, and even more effects can be downloaded as presets here.
As for the CompositeLab Pro, I'd highly recommend it...! wink Personally I think it rocks! biggrin But seriously, it can work better with poor green\bluescreens than any other compositing tool I've seen...!
Enjoy!
