If I have already bought Effectslab and Composite lab, is there any point in purchasing the Visionlab studio bundle? It's between that or the photolab bundle.

There are many benefits to using VisionLab over the other two combined. Whether the benefits are useful to you only you can judge, though. smile

Consider:

- Many additional grading filters.
- Additional effects like the lightning engine.
- Everything in a single interface, allowing combinations of effects not possible when using EffectsLab and CompositeLab separately.
- No time wasted rendering and transferring videos from one program to the other.
- Commercial license, allowing use without requiring a credit.

Hey,

Before I give you any information, download the demo's first, mess around with them for a month, then make your choice...
-Edit: not sure if there is a photolab demo. confused

Visionlab is a HUGE improvement in your filmaking. Both Effectslab Pro and Compositelab Pro are excellent editors, and Visionlab takes you a leap further. It mainly depends on what you need for your filmaking. What do you need?

Few things about Visionlab:

-Visionlab has the electricity engine. I have grown fond of it. (not many electric presets to start off with, not too many to download... YET)
-Visionlab has extended both of Effectslab's and Compositelab's features. HUGE EXTENSION ON GRADING.
-much more...

If it were me, I would invest in Visionlab. But this is totally up to you, don't make your decision based on this.

While I don't think you actually need it, it offers more features then both Elab and Clab, but it is mostly an extension of the two. If you already have both, I don't think you will seriously need it. -just my opinion. But if you are a serious movie maker, and really find use of this, I would say go for it. BUT DOWNLOAD THE DEMO FIRST!

I can tell you Visionlab is a lot of fun, even though I don't actually own it... YET, I have played around in the demo for a long time, (which is basically the full version w/o presets)

Go with what you want! Have fun... biggrin

-heads up Fxhome... I am in the midst of creating an action/drama movie. It should be done by this summer... I will post a storyboard soon, just to see how everybody reacts! biggrin
