Forums Adobe After Effects Stock vid, modest resources

    I’ve been reviewing stock video at different sources mentioned here, e.g. Shutterstock, Getty, Adobe and Motion Array. I’m making a short film and budget for stock and effects is $300 or less. Finding some good assets on all — it seems the going rate is about $80 for a HD clip. MA has the $30 no-contract monthly membership, it appears I can find much of what I need here including some light leaks, and then maybe grab a couple from other sources. Does this make financial sense to others who’ve needed a dozen or so clips plus light leaks?

    Also has anyone here used MA portfolio site builder? My website is on Wix but the format is not dynamic enough for videos — it appears this will integrate with another site but not sure.

    Posed my question here because I edit in PP, but if there’s a more appropriate forum for this let me know.

    Thank you in advance.

    As to portfolio sites, your Adobe subscription includes access to Adobe Portfolio. It’s what I built my site with http://www.szalamproductions.com but you can get way crazier with Adobe Portfolio design than I did. I just threw it together pretty quick.

    As to stock sites, there are a bunch of places that offer free stuff. Projector Films offers some free light leaks. Rocket Stock/Premium Beat has a pretty wide variety of free things. Action VFX has a bunch of free resources for visual effects stuff. And Pexels is just general stock video for free.

    I’ve not used Motion Array, but Digital Juice has a large library of templates, stock footage, fx elements, music, etc. They have a $299 “standard” lifetime membership, and $499 “pro” lifetime membership. It’s basically lifetime unlimited access to everything they have, and I’ve used it a million times over the years when I need a random element or piece of footage.

    Checkout https://mixkit.co and pexels.com and https://www.pexels.com/. Both have free video and mixkit has many other elements available as well.
