Hey all, I'm rather new. I have EffectsLab Lite and I really want to get a good

- Bullet hit on wall, so it leaves some sort of bullet hole

- Blood spurt! Liquid, not smoke! I want to figure how to make it splatter on a wall too.

- I want to put a muzzle flash BEHIND the barrel of a gun, because I shot from behind, and the muzzle flash is just engulfing the gun.

Any current presets, or presets to be made?

Welcome to the Site

You can get stock footage of blood spurts from Detonation Films or Sollthar's Stock Pack

For Bullethits... same thing stock images...

The for the muzzle flashes, you have to create a mask to make it "behind" the gun.

Check the General FAQ to help you out.

If you want realistic looking effects in terms of bullet hits, blood effects and such, you'll have to go with real stock footage.

I'd recommend you have a look at our stock pack. it features everything you mentioned:

here is the bullet hit http://fxhome.com/alamdv2/plugins/view/388/bullet-hole choose select media instead of import media and choose image0001. Here is the bloodsplat http://fxhome.com/alamdv2/plugins/view/1432/bloodsplat1 and for the muzzle flash just use a muzzle flash preset and mask the part you dont want out
