I created a StarJet Fighter from High Res Stock photos (FA18 and DC10 engine) I then greenscreened in a photo app choped off the tail and wings and put the engines (four of them) on the FA18. I greenscreened the actors (boys) in a cool looking stroller seat. In FCE I put all the pieces together and created a greenscreen video of the scenes. Are you still with me? Next I put them in CL and added space BG and flew the StarJet with zoom and banking. It looks great but now I want to add engine effects without having to mask and animate everything. How do I do this? Do I need to upgrade to VisionLab? And if so how much is an upgrade from CL Pro and FX Pro?

You appear to have EffectsLab, that will be capable of adding the engine effects using the particle engine.

You can however upgrade to VisionLab from CompositeLab and EffectsLab together, if you wish to do so.

You can currently upgrade to VisionLab Studio for $188.30. This is due to our Christmas deal, which knocks 30% off the normal upgrade price and throws in free shipping and a free copy of VideoWrap as well. Check out the store for more info.

We'll need some more details and some images from your project to give detailed advice on the shot itself.
