We've designed this site to be easy and quick to use, it's a simple 4 point process:
Note: Clips can be downloaded up to 3 times, and are available for download for 30 days from purchase. A receipt of purchase will be sent automatically to your email address.
Note: Not clear about the process, then try downloading one of our free clips first or just contact us for assistance.
You pay a one–off fee to use that particular footage clip, with only minor restrictions on how or where you use it e.g. Not pornographic, defamatory or otherwise unlawful use. Royalty free footage can also be be used across multiple projects, forever. It can NOT be resold as an individual clip.
You pay a licensing fee in order to be able to use the image. That licensing fee is based on usage. For example: location, type of media, length of time the photo will be used, etc. The buyer can also opt to pay for exclusive rights and there can be restrictions that apply based on all of the above factors.With this license, you only pay for what you're using the footage for.
Either in High Definition (HD), 4K UHD or Standard Definition (SD)
For projects that require editing of the video, combining the video with other elements
such as text, music or graphics, or when you need a higher quality version for broadcast,
or from which to generate other formats like Adobe Flash, then High Quality is for you.
These files are compressed using a lossless codec, such as Photo Jpeg, DVCPRO HD or Apple Pro Res. The files are large, but hold a lot of visual information.
Either in High Definition (HD) or Standard Definition (SD)
While keeping the same resolution as the High Quality option, the Quicktime files are compressed using H.264 for Medium Quality. H264 retains the quality and sharpness at a much smaller file size. This is a good option for those on a budget or if you aren't planning on doing colour grading, also a good option for the web.
Some videos are also available in .wmv format
HD High Quality 1920 x 1080, 1440 x 1080 or 1280 x 720

HD Med Quality 1920 x 1080, 1440 x 1080 or 1280 x 720

A lightbox is simply a collection of clips stored in a 'box' for you on the site, you can create as many lightboxes as you like and add clips to them. As a unique service you are now also able to email the lightboxes to other people - a quick way of getting approval from Clients. People you've sent the lightbox to can even edit the lightboxes themselves once they've signed up to the site. Either hover over the clip in the browse page and press the 'lightbox' button, or press the 'Add to Lightbox' button on the clip page.
Each clips preview video is available for download. These can be used as a rough guide for timings in an edit to show clients etc, they are all in the MP4 (.mp4) or Flash (.flv) format, simply press the download comp button in the clip page.
