I was just wondering is the FXHome gore footage compatible with EffectsLab Pro, as the background on the footage is white. I have previously used footage with black backgrounds, and the background disappears when placed on the video clip. But with white backgrounds, the background stays. I was thinking about buying the gore footage, so any help would be appreciated.

when multiple footage layers are used in effects lab pro, they are automatically set to screen. if my memory of effects lab serves me well, i believe you are able to set those layers to a limited about of composite modes; one of them being multiple. setting the footage to multiple will get rid of any white in your footage.

I'm pretty sure that the Multiply option isn't available in EffectsLab.

Just thought I'd post back on this topic just to say that I have sorta found a way. Go to grade, then invert the colour. It then should be blue, but the back ground will be black. But click hue shift, and change it from 0 to 180 degrees and it should be the original colour but with a black back ground.
