Not a stupid question. In fact, we put together an entire knowledgebase article for such situations, titled "How do I submit my preset to the website?"

Basically, you export it from your Lab program, then click the big Submit a Preset button in the site, but that article explains it in greater detail, with pictures and whatnot.

How do you upload stock footage to the site? I know this isn't really related, well sort of, but how?

The plugins were from the old FXhome product which is no longer avalible, it was called, Alam DV. Those were the 'presets' back then by using a frame by frame system, since the arrival of the Lab products though they cannot be created anymore through the lab programs and now the plugins remain aa old useable preset.

If I'm right about this I should smile and pat myself on the back.

Yep, B3N is absolutely correct.

In the days before EffectsLab, there was AlamDV, which used plug-ins instead of presets. Users could create plug-ins and submit them, much in the same way presets are handled today. When the vastly-improved EffectsLab was released, the less-than-stellar AlamDV software was retired, and plug-ins were no longer required. However, since they were already on the site and available, the kindly folks at FXhome opted to leave them online for anyone who wanted to use them, even though a large percentage of them are a bit rubbish (I know, I made a few myself).
