Heres my small Tutorial

1. Download the AlamDV2 Plugin
2. Unzip the file
3. Open CL
4. Import as Image stream
5. Add to time line.
6. Use "Animation" to Animate it
7. Render the clip

Download a Unzipper Programme from Google. I use Zipeg whats free.
Any other questions feel free to ask.

I'm not sure exactly which effect you are after on that page, but it is likely already animated, so its just a matter of File > Import Image stream... into CompositeLab, and compositing it into the shot with your girls.

Have you downloaded the effect yet, to check out the animation on itand see if it suits your needs?

it is "Swirling Yellow Sparks"

well, when i unzip it, it is just a ton of image files

so, i just want to make it look like they appear while my girls try to disappear, they spin in a circle around them until my girls vanish....

So, trying to figure out how to animate all those images....

You don't have to animate the images if you follow the instructions given in the earlier posts. Import Image stream... will import all the images in sequence as a video clip.
