I was wondering if you can get Lightning effects on EffectsLab Pro cause that would be brilliant.

No, but yes. There is no lightning engine of course, but there are other ways to achieve the effect, depending on the requirements of your scene. The two primary ways are to use a Freehand Neon object to draw a lightning shape and animate it, which is a bit time-consuming and provides a somewhat bold, cartoony style effect generally, or to use stock footage, which can be composited in nicely using EffectsLab.

Keep in mind the AlamDV plug-ins too, for stock footage:http://fxhome.com/alamdv2/plugins/category/66/electrical
