I have the 'More iChat Effects' from the Apple Online Store, but with very little money I can't buy anything does anyone have any good freeware effects I could use for example im a scene a person snaps there fingers and fire appears on the tip of there fingers What could I use to do this??? :confused:

    For something like fire on top of some fingers or anything, you need tools for advanced editing like Final Cut Express, where you can have one video of the fingers and another of the fire before black or blue or green background, that you can add as an overlay. As far as I know, iMovie won't do such things, but there may be some effect packages out there, but I don't really know.

    There are also trial versions of Adobe products you could tinker with, like Premiere or After Effects.
