Is it possible to add music/sounds to my video in VisionLab? Every other video editor out there seems to be able to ... but I haven't found it possible with VisionLab ...

No, because VisionLab (and the other Lab programs) are not video editor programs. You still need an editor to put together your overall movie.

Here's a general workflow for how you would use your editor together with VisionLab:

[EDITOR]
1. Import assets (footage, music, sound effects, etc) into editor.
2. Arrange into movie.
3. Export clips from editor that need visual effects.

[VISIONLAB]
4. Import clips into VisionLab.
5. Apply effects/keying/compositing/color grading/etc.
6. Render (export) clips.

[EDITOR]
7. Import new clips into editor, and insert into the timeline.
8. Finish editing and export final movie.

Thanks a lot Hendo! I'll try and find a free editor on the internet which works (Windows Movie Maker is too buggy).

Thanks.

I noticed you have a Mac icon on your profile; if you're a Mac user then iMovie comes free with OS X, and is pretty good.
