I've been away for a while, and am getting back into using EffectsLab Pro. When I last used it, there were several lightning effects that worked with it. Now, the only lightning effects that I see on the site are for VisionLab. Did the ability to handle lightning effects get removed from EffectsLab at some point?

Nope, there are still lightning presets that work with EffectsLab. The difference is that VisionLab has a lightning engine, while EffectsLab has to use the neon light engine to create the effects, else use stock footage.

There are currently at least six lightning-related presets that are compatible with EffectsLab.

Found it here:

It was listed under the Neon Light category.

Thanks, Axeman. I posted at the same time you did. Your links are much more helpful. Thanks!

How do you get the lightning texture into the neon light engine?

If you mean a texture like on that is used in a particle effect, it doesn't exist in the neon light engine. Do you perhaps mean how to get the preset in the neon light engine?
