Okay, just a question, but can we sell the presets we make for Visionlab, effects lab, and composite lab? I would prefer an answer form like tarn or another FXhome staff member. Thanks.

Well, on the homepage, they say

Release the potential of your FXhome product with hundreds of free presets!
This is by no means an official response, but I'm guessing that the answer would be "no".

Hey thanks for that response, that would make sense.

I'm not sure about the 'rules' as such - it'd be worth checking over the license agreement. However, I'd strongly advise against trying to sell presets, as it very much goes against the core concepts of the FXhome.com community.

The preset library is there as a free resource for all Lab customers. Many, many people have exchanged hundreds of presets over the years for free, so I wouldn't advise trying to make money off it. It's unlikely that anybody would be interested in buying.

Also, there would be absolutely nothing to stop someone buying your presets, then instantly submitting them to the free preset library for everyone else. smile

Very true, thanks Tarn, and the reason i asked is a while back before i found FXHome i thought i had saw a preset back for vision lab that was like 300$$$ but then again, i might have just seen one of the actual software like Vision lab, or effects lab.
