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!
I found this website while looking at a fireball tutorial. It’s full of awesome free stock footage and movie special effects that look so frikin cool! I found a muzzle flash tutorial, various fire effects and some blood splatter. I particularly liked the Kapawwe tutorial containing all you need to turn your toy shot gun into a real firing weapon! Some of the stock footage you have to pay for but there is a lot you can use for free which Is awesome and will get you set creating realistic action movie effects in no time!
I’m planing on trying out the fireball effect myself and will upload the results as soon as it’s done!
Here’s a trailer for one of their projects: Agent 12
I love to see low budget independent films that are awesome because they are full of…. awesome ^^
