For those that use after effects and motion, I've stumbled upon a great, and I mean great special effects program, inexpensive, and the hundreds of presets make explosions, muzzle flashes, lasers, and light sabers a snap. There's a free trial, and the community is second only to the Cow community. check it out and let me know that u guys think about it.

I hate this type of "marketing." I have much more respect for people who state their affiliation up front instead of trying to pass themselves off as some Joe Schmo who just happened to stumble onto some "really cool product."

I browsed the FXhome website and it's chock full of effects examples from some really cheesy indie videos. It's also pretty telling that there are no screenshots of all but one of the applications. Just showing results tells us nothing about the workflow of an app, or how easy it is to use.

Travis, I'll give you some advice: if you want to interest professional users like those who read and post on the Cow: treat them like professionals, not 16-year-old "enthusiasts." Professionals have plenty of great software options out there already. If you truly want to offer something of value, offer a great tool at a reasonable price and be very up front about who you are and what your affiliation is with the products you promote.

The muzzle flash plug-in actually looks pretty interesting, but there is nothing shown of the other applications' user interfaces, just examples of shots that were presumably created using them. Customers should not have to download and install a demo of an application just to see its user interface and features.

In the spirit of the OP, I'm cross-posting this response to multiple forums.

I respect your opinion but you are wrong in this case, I apologize that they have no images of their software, I never looked at it like that, but my intentions were honest, it's just software that I love to use that I thought I'd share with the cow community, I've only been a cow member for a little while and never saw anyone talk about it, So my sincere apologies for any offense towards any cow users, it was not my intentions.

I get absolutely nothing out of promoting it, maybe I should have not used the banner for a link and that would have made it less uninviting. And IMHO the muzzle flash generator is second to none. No disrespect to Andrew and his action essentials.

So once again TO ALL COW MEMBERS, it was not my intentions to offend anyone, just make them aware of a great program that I really like, Sorry Alan
