Yes, Action Essentials is simply a collection of stock footage which will work fine in any of the Lab programs. If I remember correctly, there are some AE project files included for reference, but you can simply disregard those. The bulk of what you are paying for is the stock footage, so you are good to go!

It is indeed an excellent collection, and the stock works just fine in VisionLab. I've used a combination of Kramer's stock and the stock we sell here at on a number of projects now. Very useful.

You can also chromakey the footage in Vegas.

You don't even need to chroma-key out the black; the footage has a built-in alpha channel.
