Just wondering if I should get both EffectsLab and CompositeLab Pro or if I should get VisionLab Studio. I need to make the choice because I will be making some big budget movies in the near future.

With the PROs do you get A full commercial licence?

The commercial license only comes with VisionLab Studio.

So if I were to publish a movie I'd have to give credit to FXHome, right?

Yes, the licence agreement requires you credit FXhome (unless you own VisionLab which doesn't include that requirement).

If you're intending to make commercial movies then VisionLab is the obvious choice. It provides all the functionality of EffectsLab and CompositeLab and more in one package. It's specifically aimed at commercial movie makers. If you have the budget then you can't really go wrong with VisionLab.

If your not making commercial movies then EffectsLab + CompositeLab is a decent choice. You still get most of the functionality of VisionLab, but you pay less in return for crediting FXhome.

The choice is still yours to make. Everyone is different and has different requirements, which is why we make a range of products to choose from. I would recommend trying the demos and seeing which programs suit your needs.

I've tried all the demos, and I will be paying this out of my own pocket, so getting both eLab and cLab is 200-300$ less then VisionLab... but we will see, as I also need a computer.... 1,000+ dollars won't come easy..
