I have just bought Stock footage "gore". When I add it to my project the white background does not go away. I have had no problems with the explosions or any other footage. Does anyone have a solution to my dilema.

You'll need to change the composite mode of the stock footage to "add" or "screen"

How might I do this. I can not find it anywhere on my toolbar.

Nope, for white backgrounds you need use "Multiply" to remove the white, and Multiply isn't available in EffectsLab. You need an actual compositing application to handle that. Your video editor might be capable of that, if you have a decent one, but that type of compositing isn't something EffectsLab was designed to do.
However, to change the composite blend mode in general, you do the following:
1. Select the layer on the timeline which you wish to alter by clicking its title on the left of the timeline.
2. In the Toolbox, the properties for the object you have selected will be displayed. Change the "Composite" box to the option of your preference, using the drop-down menu.
