Black Background Stock Footage

When using muzzle flashes, expolsions and sparks, you'd normally get the footage (say off videocopilot). You'd want the footage, with no background, over the footage you've shot.
So > create a new video layer > Add the stock footage on that layer, above your original footage > Change the above layers style to 'Screen' > Fin.

Now that you know how to do this you can stop all of those trial and errors of chroma keying black, unwanted backgrounds!

Notice - The more layers you have screened, the less visible they become over time.
