It's only natural for me to recomend mine...but it did get a Gold rating so here: http://fxhome.com/presets/info_cache/preset944.html
Two others of mine that got Silver: http://fxhome.com/presets/info_cache/preset972.html http://fxhome.com/presets/info_cache/preset963.html

And an awsome one by Oyvind: http://fxhome.com/presets/info_cache/preset512.html

...And here's a lightsaber by me: http://fxhome.com/presets/info_cache/preset809.html
Another: http://fxhome.com/presets/info_cache/preset919.html
One more not by me: http://fxhome.com/presets/info_cache/preset455.html


OK I'll stop, but if you want lightsabers check out the Episode III one's (the last one I showed you only they come in other colors) or check mine. wink
If you want lens flares then check out Redhaksrymmer's.


Hope this helps.

I would recommend looking through the archive and searching for "award:silver" or "award:gold". That makes only silver/gold presets show up, and then you can look for whatever you want to have. smile

Good luck with EffectsLab Pro!

You could either download everything, so you'll have it when you need it.

Or you can download what you need.

Doesn't matter. Enjoy EffectsLab Pro biggrin

The best are AlamDV2 plugins.http://fxhome.com/alamdv2/plugins/

From force fields, to lightning, to somke, to 3d stills of realistic looking objects, etc.!

You can't really be creative with plugins. User Jealous Flesh really pushed them to their limit in terms of creativity, and it never really looked professional. The ones that do help are things like smoke, explosions, and things that can't be done perfectly with the engines. I prefer presets for the most part. The 3d stills are virtually useless unless used in PS in a matte painting.
