In CompositeLab? Sure it is. You need to have your web element, probably rendered in 3d, and lay it over the top of your footage. Exactly which technique you use to composite it will depend on the format of the web media, but if its a 3D render you ought to be able to render with alpha channel and it'll composite quite easily.

Nope. CompositeLab doesn't create effects. It is for compositing elements into a scene. If you have your shot of spidey, and you have a seperate file that is a shot of his web (such as this or this), and you want to composite the two together, then CompositeLab is an excellent tool for the job.

If you want to create effects such as Spiderman's web, EffectsLab is a much better tool for that, as it is designed for creating effects. Even so, the success you would have in creating a web is limited, and won't be as simple as two clicks. This type of effect is probably best done in 3D.

You could combine the use physical effects (silly string etc) with 3D to create the effect.

The plugins are simply Stock-footage. Download them and then treat them as if they were just a normal video clip.

That is correct. However, the plug-ins are not available to be used by all members. In order to download the AlamDV plug-ins, you must first have an FXhome program registered to an account with the site.

To concur with Axeman, although it is possible to achieve satisfactory results by way of compositing these separate elements together, the best results would probably be achieved in a 3D application. If this is a feasible avenue for you at the moment, I recommend going this way. In any case, good luck with the effect.

Take care.
