How do you get the FXhome "Footage: Special Effects" on to your computer (Mine is a PC, not a MAC). I am having troubles seeing my stock footage with quicktime. It only has green and purple lines running across the screen. Can someone help me?

All I did was take the disk, put it into the DVD drive, open it as a folder and dragged the HD stock footage folder and the clip art folder onto my desktop.

Well for starters you should probably own a DVD drive for your computer, secondly, does quicktime have any problems with it? Try other videos on it, or try re-downloading/installing. Aside from that, when recieved my copy, the videos worked fine, but the quicktime window was huge, like bigger than the screen. So I simply hit window>half size. Also, what clips are you playing? The HD ones or the ones in the "Clip Art" folder, which are clips taken from Fxhome>Downloads>AlamDV2 Plugins.

Do you have quicktime 7?

You can just copy the folders or videos you want to wherever you want
