    You can find more organic ink and fluid video effects at TimelineGFX

    There’s bleeds, splats, drips and ink fluids. All HD 1280×720. New ones being added this weekend. 3/1/08 and lots of other mgfx tools too.

    Hope this helps.

    Do you want to have a keyed piece of footage directly into the environment that you can move the cam around with active shadows, etc?

    I think I know what you are looking to do. Create a plane object or flat nurb (the standard square plane object works best for this). Create a new material. In your new material select your color channel and select the texture drop down to reveal your option to import a texture / image into that channel. Use the Load Image selection to find your keyed movie file and import that into the texture channel.
    Depending on the file size and length of your video it may take a moment to load it.

    Next go to the Alpha channel of your material and do the same. You will then probably need to select the Invert check box and the Image Alpha check box only. (I like it best with specular off also).

    Depending on your version of C4D, that should do it. The movie file will be represented by the Plane object in the environment. Notice that as you render it out the keyed movie file will be where ever in the environment you want it to be. Be aware too, that the scrubbing of the play head in the timeline will not show you the video frames changing (until you render it out) unless you select the material you applied to the plane object in the Object tab/Manager and click on the material there. In the lower attributes of that material (video) you just applied to it you will see the selection box for “Animate Preview and that will update the frame of the video to the frame of the timeline in your C4D project.

    Hope this helped,

    I really like their stuff too. The only other good stock footage and motion graphics I’ve found is Timeline GFX they have a great mix of stuff, all HD and good prices.

    Check out they have a bunch of stock motion graphics and fx and pre keyed hd footage.

    I know there’s always digital juice but they seem a little played out and too standard for my current taste, but you can check them out too.

    Hope this helps,
