To create a preset for any effect: Right-click on the name of the effect on the timeline, and select "Create preset..." from the menu. From there, you just fill in the blanks on the Create New Preset... window, and click the "Save and Export" button at the bottom.

They even took the time to write an explanation of how it works in the manual that came with your program, on page 92 in fact.

To upload a preset, there is a huge hurkin' button at the top of the preset library page. Click it, and then follow the instructions on the screen.

Good ole page 92! Used it several times myself.

Do you think more people would open up the manuals if they were written in King James style english. That way it would sound like scripture. Plus Brother Manard could quote it for us when the evil rabbit tries to eat us.

Hehe, brilliant idea, averagejoe.

"To create thine preset, clicketh the appropriate object on the timeline with thine right mouse button, and chooseth Create preset... from within its menu.

Leftmost in the dialog lie general information details. An thou wantst to ease location and perceiving of diferent presets, get thee hence and fill in the boxes until they nigh runneth over.

Save and Export - Click this button once, and only once. Not two times, nor three, but once only. Five times is right out. One is the number of clicks you shall click. Shall storeth yon preset in thine local presets library, also saveth a preset package into thine chosen locality. Upload this package to FXhome.com to shareth thine wisdom and craft with those less fortunate than thee."

Something along those lines, perhaps, but with less changing of tense, and taking a bit more care to use the words properly?

It is a proven fact (cannot prove that statement here though) that most people do NOT read instructions....we are of the impatient generation and I am ashamed to say that I belong to it.

You are correct, but still, there is a contradiction inherent in that statement. It is much quicker to find the solution by looking in the manual than by posting on the forums and waiting for a reply. Theorieticaly, impatience should be making people look at the manual, not aviod looking at it.
