FXhome was featured on Channel 5's The Gadget Show tonight, which led to a rather massive spike in our web traffic that temporarily caused a slowdown - we apologise if you have had trouble accessing the website.

Hopefully everything should be back to normal now - and we'd like to say hello to anybody that's found us thanks to The Gadget Show.

If you'd like to see the feature, which also includes a fantastic inside look at ILM's work on Iron Man, then click here.

"You have experience with being on TV yes?"
"I wiggled a lightsaber on Channel 5 for a split second"

Great news though about the spike! Proves that your being noticed by people!

And now we must all give a big hello to whoever came on and checked it out. HELLO!

My favourite bit was when the guy on the sofa pointed at my head and said "OH MY GOD look at that!!"

I'm still chuckling.

I saw just the last part last night. It was really good to see you finally recognised.

I emailed the Gadget show either last year or the year before when they did a section about home video editing about FXHome software. They reviewed different video editing software.

They never replied, so I doubt they took any notice then. It's nice that they have found you at last. They have done loads about video editing and home special effects and filming and never ever mentioned you. They mentioned Creation Station but never you.

ABOUT TIME.

Congrats guys on the long overdue exposure! Heard about this at work today and was annoyed that I missed out on this show.

Finaly! I was wondering when they would show FXHome on the Gadget Show! I wish they could have shown it in a bit more detail like showing some of our users films.
