My stock video is available from several different sites. Many of the clips started life as elements in jobs for clients (e.g. the butterflies, the birds, the smoke and the rain) and I realized how my life would have been easier if I could have simply bought the footage instead of having to create it from scratch. Prices vary from site to site.
The videos and info on this page are intended to answer some of the questions I've been asked about my stock footage. I plan to add to them as time permits and as questions are asked.
The videos below are low rez examples of some of the videos available from the sites listed at the bottom of this page. They show how the "multi-clips" can be edited into loop-able segments. Their actual size is HD 1080 (1920 x 1080).
This low rez sample video shows a selection of the stock footage of birds. Each clip has been composed over a still image to show some of the effects possible using the black and white footage of bird animations. The free Knoll "UnMult" plugin was used to silhouette the birds against the still backgrounds. They can be layered and tinted and mixed with other stock footage (such as the smoke/fog and rain).
Two videos made using various smoke elements. Just cut the clips into three seamlessly loop-able, nine second segments and they can be layered, sized, animated, cropped, masked, tinted and looped to assemble an almost infinite number of different 3D, HD smoke effects. In After Effects, the (free) Knoll "UnMult" plugin works very well with all the smoke clips - it creates an Alpha channel and removes the black.
The two videos above were made using elements from "Hard rain", "Hard rain with splashes- 3 layers" and one part of "Smoke Drifts - 3 layers". As with the other multi-clips, just cut the clips into three seamlessly loop-able, nine second segments and they can be layered, sized, animated, cropped, masked, tinted, re-timed and looped over footage or stills to assemble an almost infinite number of different 3D, HD effects. In After Effects, try layering clips with the opacity around 50%, using the excellent (free) Knoll "UnMult" plugin - different opacity settings on the different layers give different feelings of depth.
Videos showing the two looping clips in each of the two rushing water videos. Just cut either of these videos into two seamlessly loop-able, fourteen second segments and they can be looped indefinitely.
The two videos above each show the separate elements from two hypno clips. Each segment runs just under ten seconds and is seamlessly loop-able - just cut the video into three pieces and you'll have three endlessly looping videos.
