I was recently directed to a website containing free full HD 1920×1080 stock footage. Intrigued by this I decided to check it out and sure enough there it was. Still a small site at the minute it already contains some snazzy clips. I’ve already had a bit of a play with some of the smoke clips in After Effects and they work fine, though I haven’t decided what to do with them yet.
All the video files are in .wmv which isn’t usually what you would edit with but keeps the file size down. The site links to free converters should you not own one and require them in another format.
It still needs more clips to be as bit as one of the major stock footage providers but is a very good source for free. Defiantly a site I’d recommend checking out!
