I'm using a Mac OSX, and I can't figure out how to make a .mov file so I can add sound to this video

Are you trying to create a .mov file that can be imported into EffectsLab, or are you trying to Render out of EffectsLab to a .mov file? A few details regarding what you are trying to achieve can be very helpful in getting you the answer you need.

If you are looking to Render out of EffectsLab to a .mov file, use the Render Settings, in the Render menu, to select Quicktime (.mov) for the format. Then select Render from the Render menu to Render. More detailed info on the process can be found in the manual for the program, in the FAQ in this forum, or in the knowledgebase, which provides illustrated guidance.

If you are trying to create a .mov file to import into EffectsLab, please let us know what software you are using for editing, and what the original format of the video is.

Thank you very much. Yes, I was trying to render out of EffectsLab into a .mov. Glad I got someone with some exp. Oh, and I'll try to be more specific next time. Thanks again.

Alright, glad you got it figured out. Anytime you are asking for assistance on the forums, the more details you can provide the better. You'll still probably get the answer eventually, but with more details its easier to get you the right answer much more quickly.
