having some trouble with the size of the effects and I am new to this. By size I mean relative to the video, like background gun shots, blood spurts, ect. Getting stuff smaller to fit into depth of shot. Thanks for any help.

The specifics vary a it from one type of effect to another, but if you give the tutorials a watch, you should get the hang of the basics pretty quick.

Simply change the 'Scale' of the effect.

Here's where it is in the Particle toolbox:


For Muzzle flashes, the Scale is the 1st or 2nd element in the list, I think.

EDIT: Ah, Axeman beat me to it. Well then.
