Hello, I am initial in the video, after having tested the
demo of the software fxhome, I decided to buy but front, I do
not understand the difference between visionlab and
effect+composite, if I buy effectlab then after composite I would have
the equivalent of visionlab? or I would be obliged to buy visionlab to
me and to have effectlab + composite which will not be useful to me
any more? Thank you to help me

You need to look at the Feature Comparison Chart

...which explains more than we can in a forum post.

No. When you buy FXHome software, you buy a single license for use on only 1 computer.

You can install it on computer A...then uninstall it and install it on computer B, but you cannot run on A & B at the same time. If you want to run on A & B in parallel, you must buy two licenses.

It makes no difference if you own both computers or if they are in the same room. You must still buy two licenses if you wish to install on two computers at a time.

This is the same license used by all software companies. A single license is for a single computer.

No, no.. not all software companies. I have a few software titles that specify in the EULA that the user may install on 2 (sometimes more) workstations, generally home & office, laptop & desktop, etc. Sometimes the stipulation is you must not *use* both simultaneously, but they may be installed. Sometimes it is a license that says install on any number of machines you own as long as only you are using the machine, etc.

My quick point is, software companies have very different EULA's.

I stand corrected. But importantly in this particular case (and, I'd argue, the vast majority of cases), the license is for a single computer.
