The effects shown in the demo should all be at the same place, except if you had accidentally downloaded a demo for VisionLab/EffectsLab . . . in which case the effects are not there because they can only be used with Effects/VisionLab.

To import your video, remember that CompositeLab can't capture directly from the camera. You'll have to use your NLE (non-linear editor; a program such as Windows Movie Maker or Final Cut) (although WMM is garbage, says I to save Tarn work) to capture from said camera - then export from the NLE and import it in CLab. Remember to export from the NLE in a compatible codec, such as DV-AVI.

Good luck. I hope I answered your question.

EDIT: Or do you mean that you don't know how to take the imported video and add it onto your canvas? If so, just click and drag.
