    • You may not discuss breaking DVD or BluRay encryption, copying, or "ripping" commercial, copy-protected DVDs.
    • This includes DVDs or BluRays you own. Even if you own the DVD or BluRay, it is still technically illegal under the DMCA to break the encryption. While some may argue otherwise, until the law is rewritten or the US Supreme Court strikes it down, we will adhere to the current intent of the law.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying unprotected movies or homemade DVDs.

Looking for a good special effects program

Nov 20, 2011
Reaction score
I'm looking for a good special effects program compatible with mac. I have the latest macbook pro.
The kind of effects I am looking for would be along the lines of a fantasy theme.

E.G. a spell being cast from a wand or staff, explosions, etc.

I am willing to spend whatever for what I need,
but I also need to acquire this software pretty soon and at the moment I have a limited budget.
If there's something out there for around 300$ that would work for me, I would do backflips out of sheer joy.

Thank you in advance for your answers :)
