Just checked it out myself, there isn't a day-for-night filter in CompositeLab Pro, since it's exclusive to VisionLab Studio, but using the vast tools available in CompositeLab Pro, you should be able to get almost as good a result, using various other filters such as a mix of brightness, contrast:pro, ambient light and color balance.

I also found a preset for you that works in all the Lab softwares.

Something is definitely wrong here because if you'd go to the products page, and look at the demo videos for CompositeLab Pro it clearly demonstrates using the day for night filter. If CompositeLab Pro doesn't, come with that filter then they should not show a demonstration of it and call it by name.

On the contrary, the videos are intended to demonstrate the results that can be achieved with CompositeLab, not specific individual filters within the program. The day-for-night effect, as demonstrated in that video, is entirely possible using CompositeLab; it just doesn't have the convenience of a dedicated filter for that effect, as does VisionLab Studio.

In addition to the preset which was already mentioned in this thread, there are a variety of other presets available for CompositeLab that will create different versions of a day-for-night effect. Search for "night" in the preset database for an array of options.
