hi, I'm still new at editting programs. One trouble I'm having is finding sound effects. I never realized how hard it is to find good sound effects. I'm looking for fantasy lightning, fireball, power effects. Cinematic sound effects, i mean. If it's possible, can anyone of you guys recommend a good site to get good mp3 sound effects? I cant seem to find one

A bit of an oxymoron there. Good sound effects are generally going to be in a high-quality format such as AIFF or WAV. MP3 is a very lossy format, and while it is entirely suitable for listening after a single compression, its isn't really of decent quality for editing purposes if you can at all help it. It can work, but it is less than ideal.
