Yeah dude,
cut the guys a little slack.
They're not ignoring you or anything like that.
Like B3N stated, they're probabley really busy and stuff and I'm sure they'll get to it as soon as they can.
I myself am looking forward to your presets. I love those things.
I hadn't seen any in a couple of months and then all of a sudden, I looked in the preset section and was surprised to see some new ones, which were great. biggrin

Yep. In the timeline open your clip and select the "Composite" option. Then choose Gleam.

All these +1s put a gleam in my eye. Ha. biggrin

Whatever clip or effect you have on the time line.
Look at it's attributes and you should see composite.
Click on composite and you should get four options that pop up.
Displacement.
Glow.
Light spill.
Gleam.

Gleam (along with the other "Composite" options) is available for any effect created within EffectsLab. Applying that sort of advanced compositing to video clips, however, is beyond the scope of EffectsLab's intended use. It can be done in CompositeLab or VisionLab Studio.

Firstly, yes we can help you. Secondly, there aren't any presets on the disc in question. There are clips of stock footage. They should be imported using the Import media command, after which they will appear in the media browser. From there you can use them just as you would any piece of footage you import. If this doesn't work, let us know what error message you get, or what happens when you try to import them.

Presets differ greatly from stock footage, in that they don't actually contain footage of any effects. Preset files only contain a set of parameters to be applied to the various settings in a given effects engine and/or a series of grading filters. Every setting is still fully customizeable though, making presets far more versatile and more powerful than stock footage for certain effects. There are still, of course, times when stock footage is the best way to go, and I'm sure you will find the stuff on the DVD you purchased quite useful.
