muzzle flash plugin for Motion, help

I got DE Delirium installed into motion 2.
I got the plugin from limewire.
I see that its installed in motion but I cant get an image to show over my clip.
I draged and dropped the filter onto my video clip track. The parameters are all there. But the effects wont play anything. Just blank. Any thoughts?

DigiEffects SELLS commercial software. It isn't free.

I'm pretty sure that the people on this site will not help you with software that you acquired through Limewire (legal software is not distributed using Limewire). If you meant to get the demo, you can download the demo from:

I'm just gonna reiterate the above statement and add:

This is tantamount to stealing a cop car and holding up a sign outside the police department that reads, "I stole a cop car".

I don't want to get involved in the pirate software discussion, but from my own experience I know that I get better result by exporting the frame and then add the flash in for example Photoshop.

Search for images "muzzle flash" in Google, and you'll find several high res muzzle flashes on black background.

Joe:

Unlike 99.99% of the rest of the internet message boards, this site is very legit, very up-and-up, with sponsors and all that. It's a very high-end professional site that the actual MAKERS of software use, not just users. I think that was the intent of the cop car/cop station reply.

Never admit that you stole software. A ton of people on this board probably have, but no one admits it.

No one that is smart. =)

I've used Delirium before and never had a problem like the one you are describing. With pirated software you face all sorts of problems. The program could be somehow incomplete or corrupt. Who knows? I would suggest trying the demo. If you really like it, buy the software. If you can't afford it, do as others have said and just composite a muzzle flash image over your original footage.
