Thanks. Another question now - within the grading effects i am looking to use the colour gradient one - is this included with EffectsLab Pro? If so, why can't I find it in the demo download?

Thanks again.

Computoholic - Well, first you have to own a copy of the software, and register it here on the site, the you just go into the store and buy an upgrade.

The color gradient, basically a digital grad filter, is an advanced grading tool, and as such is only available in compositeLab Pro or VisionLab Studio. A quick look at the product pages will tell you exactly which filters are to be found in each program.

Thanks Axeman - is there another way (with Effects Lab Pro) that I can achieve the sort of effect that is displayed on the home page of http://fxhome.com where you see the man (eating) and woman with different grading effects wiped across the screen?

This is bascially what I am needing/wanting to upgrade to Pro for; to get this 'film' effect.

Sure there is. In fact, I'm pretty sure they didn't use any color gradients in that footage. There are several film look presets included with the program; and lots of others you can download.

That is a list of the grading presets available for EffectsLab Pro. Take a look thorough that and see if anything gives the result you are after. If there are a few that come close, look at the details of what filters they use, and you can tweak things from there to get the exact look you are after.

Thanks again. This might sound stupid, but is there a preset out there that I can use to apply a generic 'film' look to my footage? I know that this always a combination of careful grading etc., but for beginners is there an easy way to do this?

(Sorry this is going a bit off topic)
