O.K well wrong place to put a support question. Could you be specific to which program you are using and what the effect is. If you mean "film file" as exporting the profject into a video then I can help.
Go to the top of your screen and go under the tab that says "render." Click on "render settings" and choose you settings. Then go to "render" and decide where to place your file. I'm sure you can figure out the rest.

I encourage you to have a look at the video tutorials, which cover all the basics of the program's interface and how to use it. There's some useful info in the manual included in the download, as well. Once you mention what program demo you downloaded, I'll move this to the appropriate support forum.

It's pretty simple to use. I figured out the laser and neon light engines pretty quick, but the tough stuff is the particle engine. I didn't figure that out for a really long time, though now it's one of my favorite engines. Just keep plugging away, watching and rewatching the tutorials. Another thing: try opening a project, then when the tutorial suggests a modification or shows you an attribute, go look at it yourself on the project.

Explore with it. That is how I learned.












Video tutorials don't hurt too.
