Spaceship Sound Effects Pack

 

Spaceships, done right, can be iconic.

 

They’re a character in their own right. Just think about your favorite spaceship. The Millennium Falcon, Serenity, Battlestar Galactica, Starship Enterprise, they’re all as much a part of your favorite movies and shows as the actors are.  The best ships are the ones that have personality (figuratively or often literally), quirks, a unique look, and  most importantly, great sound.

How to create Alien Invasion VFX – Tutorial

To prove the power of ProductionCrate assets, we put them to the test by creating a large-scale city destruction VFX shot.

ProductionCrate is a library of over 10,000+ professional video effects, stock footage, sound effects and 3D models. You’ll be happy to hear that a lot of these assets are free to download, while Pro users can access the entire library, including 4K assets.

We’re constantly updating our library with new and exciting creative content, such as our most recent bundle of 4K dust and smoke accents.

Download 4K Smoke Burst VFX Assets

These have been built in with alpha-mattes using a Quicktime PNG codec so that you simply need to drag and drop this into your project. This, with the different file formats available for you to download, means our VFX assets are compatible with After Effects, Hitfilm, Premiere Pro and more.

Another brand new asset that we used in the shot is our 3D alien spaceship model. This is provided in OBJ format, the most widely supported file type, compatible with Blender, 3ds Max, Cinema4D, Element3D and more.

GraphicsCrate provided a huge level of control for the look of the environment. While video assets are good for explosions and lasers, static graphics can give us the power to add cracks, scorch marks and rubble to our scene.

Here’s the full list of assets we used in this video:

Epic Sound Design Packs

 

Some moments just need the right sound design to take them to that next level. We’re happy to provide you with those tools. SoundsCrate now hosts over 125+ Epic Sound Design assets in various categories.

 

Anticipation Sound Effects

This collection really gets the heart racing. Build-ups, shimmers and reverse cymbals will signal something big. Follow these up with a beat of silence before hitting them with a bass drop or cinematic punch, then sit back and enjoy watching their jaws drop.

 

Cinematic Hit SFX

This is the moment where everything comes together. The super-nova explodes or your skydiver takes the plunge. That epic moment needs epic sound to impact your audience in every way possible. This pack comes with the classic echoey pin drop sounds, some bassier hits (you can also choose from our Bass Drop Collection) and many of the hits come with pre-built risers for faster integration.

 

Epic Ambient and Tonal

The collection has some intense risers to set the vibe. It’s also packed with monks chanting and angel choirs. If you have a good reason to use these, take advantage. Any scene or shot that even partially justifies utilizing this pack is instantly epic in my book.

Meteor VFX Breakdown – Quick Tutorial

No disaster movie is complete without an apocalyptic meteor effect. This Davesplanation breaks down the steps we went through to create our very own asteroid impact using VFX!

This was built using a variety of software and ProductionCrate assets, including:

3D Photoscanned Meteor Model – A high-quality photorealistic asteroid that had been digitally scanned from the real world. You can learn more about these assets in this excellent breakdown video.

Dust and Smoke VFX assets – These were essential in completing the look of the effect, creating a realistic volumetric appearance to the meteor’s impact. Tinting them to match the ground, as well as stacking them several times is all that is required to professionally polish your compositing.

Explosion and Fire Sound Effects – ProductionCrate’s huge selection of sound effects means you will be able to pair the correct audio to your visuals. We layered together several of these to create a dynamic and exciting audio track.

Feel free to check out our 2-minute information-packed video to learn some of the techniques we used.

Over 1 Billion Views – ShutterAuthority Interview

 

 

A lot of us talk about the good old days of ‘Early Youtube’. We like to look back five or ten years and remember the ridiculous sketches, mind-blowing short films, awkward music videos and the initially unique but now tired gimmicks.

 

There were also the early VFX legends inspiring new waves of artists. Corridor Digital, FreddieW (now RocketJump), and VideoCopilot to name just a few. Videos with consistently more impressive and more creative visual effects starting to pop up all over the place. The industry that seemed exclusive to high-budget blockbuster films had somehow found a place online. I can’t tell you the number of times friends and family have sent me an ActionMovieKid video or one of the seemingly endless Zack King clips. Somehow VFX artists have found themselves at the forefront of this insane, exciting and extremely delightful industry.

 

More lately than ever before it seems like Youtubers are pushing out content faster and faster. Quantity over quality has been a surprising evolution for online media. It’s not all bad, I do enjoy a lot of the new content, but I can’t help but miss ‘Early Youtube’. That’s why when I found ShutterAuthority, I was instantly sucked in.

 

Raghav and his team create VFX heavy internet shorts. Creativity, quality, style and uniqueness are squeezed into each video. Each short is fun to watch, with well developed story and comedic timing. Their content is a lot of ‘In Real Life’ videos and dream-battles that would never happen otherwise. Titles like The Terminator VS T-Rex and Packman In Real Life give you a good idea of what to expect.

 

Shutter Authority has over a Billion Views and 2 Million subscribers. Their story is inspiring for all Youtubers looking to build an audience and make awesome content. Check out the full interview below.

 

Godzilla VS Packman (26,553,185 views)

 

Chris: Godzilla VS Packman, Terminator VS T-rex, these are fantastic and really out-there ideas. How do you decide what video to make next?

 

Raghav AK: It’s usually a combination several factors; topics I’m passionate about, CG/VFX aspects I’ve been experimenting with that match the topic and if the topic has any topical value at the time.

 

Chris: You’ve started adding breakdowns at the end of your videos, why did you decide to start doing this?

 

Raghav AK: We get a ton of comments asking us how we make these videos and a lot of people don’t seem to know anything about VFX and other filmmaking techniques, so we thought we’d take the opportunity to give the audience a little sneak peak into the making of to bring awareness on what’s possible even for a very small team like ours.

 

Check out this awesome breakdown for Mega-Godzilla: King of the Universe

 

Chris: It seems like you’re able to release a project roughly every month. With the level of work that goes into each, I have to assume this is your full time job. Do you do client work as well?

 

Raghav AK: Yes, its quite a bit of work to take a video idea to completion, because we try to do most of the tasks in-house. Of course, we do use stock footage and other assets from sources like ProductionCrate, VideoCopilot, ActionVFX, Film Riot etc, which really help us make better quality work at a shorter turn around times. Yes, I do this full time and I do take up a little bit of client work if the project is very interesting and I find the time to pull it off alongside the videos for my channel.

 

Chris: What was your most difficult project to-date, and why?

 

Raghav AK: We worked on a 360 video based on Temple Run as a collaboration with Google Daydream. It was our first time working on a 360 video. Every shot was a VFX shot involving 3D CGI and most of them were moving camera shots that needed loads of clean up too. It took us nearly 3 months of non-stop work to pull this off.

 

 

Chris: After Effects and Blender seem like your preferred software, are there others you’d like to learn?

 

Raghav AK: Yes, AE and B3D seem like a perfect fit for an indie creator like me who needs to be able to quickly create semi complex shots for my short films. I’m currently working on improving my sculpting and texturing skills in Blender, but I’d love to learn Substance Painter to take the realism to next level. I’m also very impressed with TyFlow which is extremely powerful for simulations. Another tool that interests me EmberGen to create fluid sims in Real time.

 

Chris: You seem to start things off with a lot of preparation and planning. Can you explain what your process is like from idea to completion?

 

Raghav AK: Thank you! As you have seen in our making-of segments, I always like to break down a task into as many small tasks as possible. Our process is as follows:

 

  1. Writing the script
  1. Making storyboards. Run VFX tests in parallel to make sure what we’re aiming for is even possible
  1. Prepare for the shoot- and Shoot it
  1. Editing a rough cut, identifying and categorizing the VFX shots
  1. VFX Process
  1. Editing, colour grading and sound design.

 

Chris: What is the most surprising or exciting thing that has happened with Shutter Authority?

 

Raghav AK: We’ve had a lot of exciting things happen over the last few years, and some of them include going mega viral with more than half our videos, and accumulating 1B views in total on our channel, where 3 of our videos have surpassed 120M views. This to me is absolutely insane and I’d really love to thank our audience for supporting our work!

 

Chris: Whats advice can you give aspriring Youtubers?

 

Raghav AK: I’d encourage creators not to hesitate when experimenting with multiple ideas at the start to figure out what exactly they’d like to do on Youtube. Also make sure its something you truly love doing, because you might have to do it for a while before anything happens. I started my channel back in 2006 and it took me 7 years to hit 1,000 subscribers and 9 years for 10K. It only sped up later and took off to 1M in just 2 years after that.

 

It was only possible for me to stick around doing this kind of content for that long because I love making films with VFX and I’d be willing to do it regardless of whether I made money from it or not. Its ultimately about find a common intersection between something unique that you love to create and what people would love to watch.

 

Chris: What’s next?

 

Raghav AK: We have a bunch of cool short film ideas lined up for 2020 that involve Sci-fi, Robots and Dinosaurs. We’d love to do something bigger involving larger productions in the future around similar topics. Until then, Stay tuned for our youtube vids 😉

Over 200 New Slime VFX

You can now download over 200+ Slime Effects!

These assets are incredibly versatile. Use them to create spider-webs, evil underground lairs, insane motion-graphics, monster-spittle and so much more! As usual we have gone through the trouble of prekeying these VFX for you. Both Free and Pro options are available.

Play with different blending modes to see what works best for your scene. For clear slime try adding a black solid composite and increasing the white levels to fill in the transparency. You can now use that black and white matte to drive an alpha matte of an adjustment layer, drop the original slime asset above both the matte and adjustment layer with an Overlay or Lighten blend mode.

Try various blurs and maybe even adjust the exposure on your adjustment layer to make it look like your slime is affecting your scene.

Our slime collection was built keeping in mind all the possible uses we could come up with. We decided to shoot slime drips, slime hitting the ground, slime pulled apart, slime pulled up, down and every conceivable direction. It got messy.

After cleaning up the first round we realized we didn’t want to just make clear slime, we wanted more options.

 

Colored Slime

Real specular reflections are captured with the colored slime. We have green, blue and pink, but the colors can be easily adjusted to any color.

 

Blood Slime

Our blood slime collection is exactly what you would expect it to be! If you need to dismember a character then this is the first pack you should look at.

 

Clear Slime

Our clear slime collection is the largest collection. Here you can find any type of slime asset you could possibly need!

 

 

3D Arrow Pack Now Available

Pro Users can now download these 4 unique 3D Arrow Assets. These 3D Models come fully textured. We made a variety of styles to choose from, varying from the Stone Age to the Future!

 

 

Let’s go back in time, starting from the future! We have a Sci-Fi style arrow available for you to download. This model comes with a separate tip, which you can rotate at a different rate to give your arrow animation a more mechanical vibe.

 

ScifI arrow Model for Download

 

Modern style arrows look pretty awesome as well! This model is similar to the look of many current hunting arrows, with plastic feathers and an intimidating arrowhead.

 

 

The medieval arrow can span many centuries, and is probably the style you think of when you think ‘bow and arrow’. This one has realistic feathers and an iron tip.

 

 

And finally, the stone-tipped arrow!  Thread keeps the arrowhead on this ancient looking weapon. This is my personal favorite, so I’ll give it two photos.

 

 

We have tons of 3D Weapon assets to choose from, including these Grenade Models!
