Hi. I am in pre-production on a super 8 short and will be looking to add a few Fx in post. How well will the software integrate with film? I will shoot with a Nizo - at 25fps - and edit with Final Cut on a Mac. Anyone else use film and FXHome?

FXHome is the name of the company. Presumably you mean EffectsLab?

Yes, Lucky Strike was shot on 35mm and after being scanned/telecined into video, visual effects were added using EffectsLab.

You'll need EffectsLab Pro if your video is going to have a resolution higher than DV (NTSC 720x480 or PAL 720x576). EffectsLab Lite doesn't support high def resolutions.

When you create your EffectsLab project, just make sure to choose the correct settings that match your video, e.g. frame rate, resolution, interlacing/progressive.

I don't why but just about every new user (Including me unfortunately) doesn't even know the name of the software their using. They think it's pronounced FXLab instead of EffectsLab or they get the website name and the software name mixed up and think their using FXhome from the company FXLab or something like that. All I remember thinking is that there were a lot of FXs involved with the software names.

But it’s all so simple now.
