    Currently it requires Filmora V8.6.0 or above to install the effect pack from the effect store. You can select About…under Help and check which version you have now.


    If your computer is running 32 bit OS, the latest version you can get is V7.8.9 only. So you have to upgrade your operating system to 64 bit OS so that you can install a higher version.
