I've downloaded the AlamDV2 Plugins I need, but I'm not sure how to put them on to my video. When I click "Import Fxhome preset pack" ( or something along those lines; I can't quote it exactly", and I select the file and click OK, it just doesn't show up in the library. And by the way, I don't know anything about AlamDV2 Plugins, so........

To use the AlamDV2 plugins, you need to download and unzip to your hard drive, keeping track of where you save them (I created an AlamDV2 folder in my FXhome installation folder). Then, when you launch EffectsLab, choose "Select image stream" and browse to the folder with the AlamDV2 plugin that you want and drill down to the folder that actually contains the images (this is generally a subfolder of the folder that you downloaded and unzipped). When you select the folder that contains the image stream, it will show up on your canvas.

Of, if you have an existing EffectsLab project open and want to add from there, click on File -> Import image stream and import the same way as described above and it will show up in your media tab.

They're not presets... they're a set of single images which the Lab products play back like a single video file.

When you locate the folder, open it and you'll see a few more folders.
click on one that reads 1v... that folder contains the Alamdv images.
Some folders have more folders such as 1v 2v 3v and so on. they contain more image files.
