What are Alam DV2 plugins, and how do you use them.

Do they work with FX Lab Pro or Composite Lab Pro.

I'm not exactly sure what plugins are, and I don't know how to use them either, but they are compatible with Clab, and I think Elab.

They are pictures that you can import into other software. They were only plug-ins for the ancient AlamDV software; any other software is only going to use the images.

Is this because I told you to put them in your film?

Anyways here are instructions on how to use them:
1)Open Effectslab, Compositelab, or Visionlab
2)Insert your video clip
3)Click on the media tab
4)Right-click under or beside the picture of your video clip (otherwise known as the BLANK space)
5)Click on "Insert Image Stream..."
6)Find where you saved your AlamDV2 Plugin to
7)Click on the file and you should see a file that says "+ images" click on it.

If you see just one line then the number 1 then that means there is only 1 object. If you see two or more lines followed by numbers then that means the AlamDV2 has more than 1 object in it.

8)Click on the first file
9)Click on the VC1 file
10)The plugin should appear on the media tab.
11)Drag onto canvas.
12)There you go!

Numbers 8 and 9 are the same for all the others.

8)Click on the second file
9)Click on the VC2 file

Same thing! See the pattern?-Storm
