Am I correct in thinking that if I buy VisionLab it will have everything that CompositLab has? Is this the top of the line? I need to make my purchase soon and was just checking.

did you already buy vision lab? you have the icon thing on your post. to your question vision lab does what all the other programs do with several improvements i think. it's an all in one type thing. check out the promos on the home page and the products on the products page. you'll see a lot of cool stuff.

the holidays are coming up, which means fxhome will have its yearly christmas discount. you could have waited a little longer to buy visionlab for a cheaper price. but since you already have it, there's nothing that can be done. however, you could perhaps buy videowrap or photokey at a cheaper price too.

Thank you for letting me know about the sales. Unfortunaly I need to do my project now so it was not good to wait. I may consider photokey. Is it better than Adobe photoshop Elements 5.0? That is what I now own. Thank you again for all your help.

though photokey is a good product for pictures, adobe photoshop elements is much better but also more expensive

I disagree. Elements is not better for greenscreen work, which is exactly what Photokey was made for. Elements is better for general photo editing work, which is exactly what Photokey was not made for.

Photokey was built with a very specific purpose in mind, and it does it as well as any software out there, and better than most. Certainly better than anything in its price range.
