What would be the best way to simulate bullet holes in walls with Effectslab?

I saw the bullet hits on metal but I was looking for something that would stay in place during a shot.

Thanks

Well I think the AlamDV2 plugins wil be your best bet... I don't know what you mean by staying in place. Could you not just create sparks (or dust rising) were the shot hit?

How would I import the plugins? I downloaded a couple of those.

By staying in place meaning they wouldn't disappear but I answered my own question after I typed it.

Thanks for the response.

Import your plugins as stock footage. If you don't know how to do it I'll search for a tutorial around here somewhere...

If you could find the tutorial that would be great.
Thanks so much.

There's a tutorial on using stock footage. FYI, there is a sticky toward the top of the EffectsLab forum with all the text tutorials compiled, so they are easy to find.
