I'm making a Portal type of preset, like in the video game, that has a green center, for keying out-if i had it as a stock footage, i could warp it for slants, so how could i make it stock?

Couldn't you just render it out as an MOV or AVI?

As they said above, (make sure you have it on a black background) render the effect to a video file then open it in the media bar thing in your program and set the effect to either screen or add (if it is a light effect -- add makes it appear brighter).

You can also retain the alpha channel when you render, which makes compositing non-light based effects uber easy as well.
