I'm making a Ping Pong movie like the Matrix and what I need is just a solid ping pong ball. I'm no good at makin presets myself, and I was hoping they had one in the Alam DV 2 plugins, but they dont. If someone could help me out, I'd much appreciate it. I have Effects Lab Pro.

Why don't you just take a photo of a ping pong ball, then cut it out in Photoshop? You can then composite it as required.

That would be simplest. You might have more control over the effect though, if you use a 3D app to create it.
