What do I need to do to use Elab for comercial uses such as selling DVD's?

That's the advantage to buying VisionLab, you get all the features of EffectsLab and CompositeLab and a few extras, plus you get a license to use the software without providing a credit.

Personally I'm always so proud of the results I get from FXHome products, I'm happy to add the credit to the end of my productions! smile

Hmm, I never knew this.

So you have to credit Fxhome every time you make a movie with Effectslab or Compositelab confused: Even if it's a simple test?

Ok, if we have to, in the end credits, could I just write "special thanks to Fxhome?" Would that work as credit? Of course I'll credit you guys if we have to, I just never new about this topic.

Well, yeah I think you're supposed to credit them if you post the movie on the Internet, test or otherwise. Does it really matter? If viewers see the effects, they'll like them (or not--unlikely) whether it's a test or not. So it makes sense to me that of course you always credit FXhome.

Yeah, it can just be a standard part of the end credits, doesn't have to be anything fancy.

I know it was probably a joke, but honestly, why would you (or anyone) really want to get around the crediting FX Home? The guys on the team work hard, have to clean up the mess we make in the forums and keep stuff running around here. Not to mention the awesome, relatively inexpensive and very practical/useful sftware they make! I'm proud to use their software in my movies and I don't mind the credit that is needed in the video, which is well deserved.

VLab is ideal, but if the crediting didn't exist, ELab and CLab, etc. would be much more expensive.

Cheers,
