Simply click the object's track on the timeline to display its properties, then change its composite blend method to 'add' or 'screen'.

You need to composite it using one of the various blend methods ('add' or 'screen'). Alternatively you could value key the black out of the image.

Either way - if you're able to afford VisionLab I would seriously recommend stock footage over AlamDV plugins. AlamDV plugins are terrible quality. Stock footage will give you far more options.

Try this stock footage

excuse me but I communicate thanks to a translator, it is difficult
for me to peel a whole site to find information precise, I make an
effort there
thank you very much for your invaluable assistance
