I own visionlab, and adding effects like an explosion to a hand-held scene can be very difficult. you have to go frame by frame, setting the animation for the explosion in the same place. This is why I think fxhome should create a camera tracking software that works with the fxhome products and effects. This would make effects very easy to stay in place and follow the movments I make with the camera.

But note that 1) you don't have to animate frame by frame, necessarily, with an explosion. And 2) there is stock footage for less painful and more realistic, if less customizeable, effects.

Not seeing how that can help in this instance....you still have to position those effects to match the movement of the scene.

Also, I don't quite see why Garrison got a -2...the OP has posted and re-posted this exact same question, while getting the answer each time. This being the third time he posted the EXACT SAME QUESTION, Garrison's response is completely fair and justified. He answered the question, and tried to deter the guy from mindlessly posting a 4th time. Can't see any reason why that post is deserving of even one -1.
