Q: Can I use the music / video effects in projects that I intend to make money on? A:Yes! You are free to use the downloads...
Getting started & basic info:
Nope, you can create a free account and download thousands of professional-grade files for free. Free accounts are limited to 5 downloads per day however.

Items marked with this star are exclusively PRO, items without a star are FREE for all users to download.

Approximately half our content is free and half is PRO.
We provide several HD & 4K formats. You can download the VFX as pre-keyed MOV files, or as MP4 files on greenscreen. The sounds and music can be downloaded as either WAV files or MP3 files.

Once you are logged in, click on a thumbnail to show the large preview, then click the large blue download button to get the HD & pre-matted file.
New designer content (in bulk) is added to FootageCrate every week - sometimes daily. New music & SFX are added to SoundsCrate every month. We are also constantly working on the top requests from the community!

*Approximately half our content is free and half is PRO.
If you cannot activate your account, please write our support team at support@productioncrate.com and we can activate it.
You have reached your daily download limit. This is reset each day at 12 AM PST, so come back tomorrow or upgrade to PRO for full access.

If you still have remaining free downloads but can not download content then your router or proxy is downloading the content in chunks. This can be resolved by making sure to complete one download before starting another.

How to use the content after downloading:
To maximize quality, playback support, and ease of use, our MOV files are encoded with the PNG codec. Many systems and video editors (including the newest version of AE) have support for this codec built in, but for some users this codec will not work natively.

Installing / Updating Quicktime will fix this - Quicktime can decode MOV files with the PNG codec while preserving the alpha channel, so you can simply add the decoded file as a transparent layer in your video editing software.

If for some reason you can not install Quicktime, you can install the k-lite codec pack, or Perian to get support for the PNG codec, or you can use a video transcoder to convert the files to another format which supports the alpha channel.

Install / Update Quicktime
1. Be sure to have the latest version of Quicktime installed.
2. Under the clip's opacity settings, change the Blending Mode to Screen.
1. Be sure to have the latest version of Quicktime installed.
2. In the video layer options select 'Picture in Picture' instead of 'Cutaway'.

Nope, we do not post anything to facebook for you.
Comp-Ins are renders of either Front and Back or Front and Full simulations or animations. This allows users to place a subject within the effects either using rotoscoping or keying. The FX will then appear to move fully around the subject without any further work required. The layering works in the order of

1) C/I Front
2) Subject (keyed or rotoscoped)
3) C/I Back or C/I Full.
