FXhome.com is growing by the day, with people from all over the world joining to share a mutual interest in filmmaking and special effects.

With an ever-increasing number of posts and often heated debate, the Forum is the liveliest area of FXhome.com. This Forum Guide has been created for new and olds users alike, with the aim of promoting a healthy and friendly community.

The Guide
What to do if you have a problem
Consequences of Forum abuse
Most importantly...

The Guide

• FXhome.com members come from all over the world. This means there are many different cultures, ideologies and religions here: FXhome.com is a place for all. Please tolerate other people's beliefs and opinions.

• Any form of discrimination has no place at FXhome.com.

• Please respect other people's work. Some filmmakers here have been working for decades, while others are only just starting out. Consequently, there will be a wide range of movies in the Cinema, of varying quality. Bear this in mind when commenting and rating.

• When commenting on a submitted movie, try to offer constructive criticism. Unwarranted or unjustified negativity and insulting responses are not welcome.

• As we are primarily a software company, we cannot allow discussion of warez or illegal software distribution.

What to do if you have a problem

If somebody is causing you problems, or you find a post insulting, unpleasant or rude, please try not to respond angrily. This will only create an argument that will grow out of control.

Instead, contact one of the Moderators or email us at support@fxhome.com, and the post and its author will be dealt with appropriately.

Consequences of Forum abuse

If somebody is abusing the Forum or FXhome.com members, we will deal with the matter appropriately and discreetly.

Depending on the nature of the problem, we may deduct Force points, warn the poster or delete the post in question. In particularly extreme cases we may even delete the accounts of the guilty party and ban them from the website. Of course we would rather not do this - it would only be in extreme cases.

Most Importantly...

Stay calm! The internet is an unusual social arena. Its indirect nature means that arguments can quickly and unexpectedly get out of hand - often due to a misunderstanding.

As with any large community, there are always going to be a couple of troublemakers. What is important to remember is that the vast majority of people are here to make friends, meet future colleagues, discuss filmmaking and talk about movies.

This Guide is not intended to stifle the creativity, humour and banter that occurs on the Forum. It is just meant as a helpful guide for the rare occasion that problems arise.

All of us contribute to the FXhome.com community - it is up to all of us to make it the place we want it to be.

Scince we shouldn't say anything insulting shouldn't that include no cussing on the forum. I happen to find that very offensive. And don't you say nerdalert about this aculag. I have enough problems trying to find any good movies on here without cussing in them. All the ones that don't have any cussing usually aren't made at a high quality and those made at high quality have cussing. The forums in the least should have a no cussing rule because the movies always have warnings but with forums there is no warning.

'Cussing' isn't allowed on the forum. You'll notice that whenever someone manages to sneak something past the auto-moderator, I tend to replace it with something amusing and humiliating.

Because I believe in freedom of expression when it comes to art. We have a rating system, you can choose not to watch the 15 and 18 rated movies if you dislike the subject matter.

On a personal note (not related to CSB-Digital), I am always strongly against any form of censorship.

This is just something I've been wandering about British people.

If Amercans call it a vacation and British people a holiday
Then what do British people call what Americans call holidays, example: Christmas, Valentines day, Easter, ect, ect...

We need to censor that aculag:

***** poo female dog.
Fudge was a "curse" word back when fudge itself was invented,
so, I think, in spirit of old times, that should be censored. biggrin lol

If someone is shooting at you, would you more likely say "Aw man" or "HOLY S***!" ?

LtMcMurphys things says
A girl died in 1933 by a homicidal murderer. He buried her in the ground when she was still alive. The murdered chanted, "Toma sota balcu" as he buried her. Now that you have read the chant, you will meet this little girl. In the middle of the night she will be on your ceiling. She will suffocate you like she was suffocated. If you post this, she will not bother you. Your kindness will be rewarded.
eek Well fellow FXhome users i read the chant so goodbye sad

Lol that thing is wierd is the story real or is it fake

Yeah, kinda like when you watch movies on network tv and they've edited out the bad language as best they could. I remember seeing Independence Day and when they were on the alien mothership and the alien opens the windows, what's-his-name was like, "Oh, Shoot" and his lips were moving another way... biggrin

Yeah um, a bit off topic.

While personally I think there shouldn't be a need for censoring, considering that people shouldn't be cussing anyway, I think that movies should say why they are rated what they are rated. There are movies I want to see that are rated 15, but I don't know why. If it's for violence, then okay. But sex or language? I can't watch that. So I think there should be an explanation.

Yes. You will need software to composite the explosions onto the footage you have. Take a look at the store. Each of the first 3 products on the page can help you add the explosions to your film. There's alot more than effects that go into filming as well. Obviously a camera, another editor (Try looking at Sony Vegas) to add titles and assemble your edited clips. My suggestion to start would be to try the demos, available here. Watch the tutorials . Go to www.detonationfilms.com and download some of their free explosion footage. Work with that and see what you think.

This question would probably be more effective if you asked it in the filmmakers forum... Not general chat, forum guide. wink lol
