Can I paint something on a frame I snapped, or apply some sort of post processing effect (like adding rain or snow) to it?

Question:  I have snapped a shot but now I want to do something like paint on text or apply lens flare or some other post-processnig effect that I can't do within FrameForge 3D Studio.  Is this possible?

Answer:  Yes.  Simply go to the Shot Manager (by pressing either button labeled SM near the preview frames on the main view), select the shot you want to edit and click the button labeled Edit in Paint Program.

NOTE:  Once you have made the desired changes to the shot in whatever paint program you are using you (a) must save the image without changing its name or directory and (b) close the paint program before any changes will apear in FrameForge 3D Studio.  Also, if you use Photoshop and you add layers to the shot, in order for the shot to return to FrameForge 3D Studio, you must flatten the image prior to saving it or it will save it in a format that FrameForge 3D Studio cannot read.
