The best elements for Education

Get the largest VFX Stock Footage library in the world! The ActionVFX Drive brings you all of our collections at a highly discounted price. With our elements at your disposal, you'll spend less time searching for assets, and more time creating VFX magic. 

The ActionVFX Drive is used by the top studios in the world, including:



9 categories: Explosions, Fire, Debris & Impact, Gun FX, Particles, Smoke, Sound FX, Water, and Weather.

Built for Compositors

Like you, we are compositors, so we understand the need to have stock footage that stay within the frame, are properly exposed, and include enough variety to work in the toughest situations.

Professionally Captured

Our elements are shot in 4K, 5K, and 6K resolution, at up to 120fps, using RED digital cinema cameras. They're delivered in ProRes, OpenEXR, as well as the raw .R3D file straight from the camera.

Licensed for your School

With the included Multi-User license, all students and faculty are licensed to use ActionVFX elements. Transfer the drive to your server and grant your entire school easy access to our library.

2018 customer reel

 "Not only are ActionVFX elements shot very well, but everything stays within frame and are properly exposed with nothing clipping, which is fantastic!"

Kyle Spiker ‐ Lead Compositor at Netflix

"Most recently, we made use of their ActionVFX elements on AMC's "The Walking Dead". Using their Explosions Vol. 2 Collection enabled our team to pull off convincing explosions in a short amount of time."

Christian Cardona ‐ Senior VFX Supervisor at Picture Shop

"It’s extremely easy to work with the elements. They’re high quality, high frame rate, great dynamic range with tons of detail and they don’t break frame."

Sindre Johnsen ‐ Lead Compositor at CoSA VFX

"Since the moment we first used ActionVFX there has been no turning back - I have not gone back to our old elements library since. This is simply the standard of material compositors should be working with."

Jonathan Alenskas ‐ DFX Supervisor at Stargate Studios

 "ActionVFX elements are the best in the industry, combining significant dynamic range, high resolution and frame rates."

Colin Feist ‐ FX Supervisor/Compositor at Zoic Studios
