Every effect on Effects Lab has a mask option. When you place the effect on the timeline,(I assume a 'fire effect of some sort'), look at the sections to the bottom left. There you will find 'Mask' at the end of the list. Click on it then you can select 'circle, rectangle, or freehand'.

There is also 'Mask Letters' available in the download area. There is the basic alphabet and numbers 0-9. AlamDV2 Plugins is where they are located.

Maybe watch the tutorial for masking objects.

That's the only 3 ways I can help. Hope this helps you.

EffectsLab Lite doesn't have the object mask feature, you are correct. Only the Pro versions and VisionLab Studio include object masks.

or..... You could print them out on hard card and pour petrol on them and set them on fire. Film it against a black backdrop and you'll have an awsome firey text effect that is totally genuine biggrin

I've done it before and it actually looked rather cool.
