6 Best ProductionCrate Alternatives

Expand Your VFX resources with these 6 ProductionCrate Alternatives.

ProductionCrate is one of the most well-known stock elements platforms in the industry, offering a wide variety of assets ranging from 2D animation, sound effects, and complex visual effects. It provides high-quality effects through four specialized websites (FootageCrate, SoundsCrate, GraphicsCrate, and RenderCrate), but it does have some drawbacks, namely:

  • The VFX elements users download are not always ready to use and often need to be adapted for projects.
  • With a Pro or Enterprise subscription, the ProductionCrate licensing agreement limits access to downloaded assets to a maximum of five team members.
  • All subscriptions cover all four of ProductionCrate's platforms, regardless of what you plan to actually use. If you are exclusively looking for VFX elements, it's not possible to subscribe to just one of them, so you pay for access to sound elements, plugins, graphics, transitions, 3D models, and more features that video editors might never use.

With this in mind, in this article, we'll discuss six ProductionCrate alternatives that may be better suited to different types of users with diverse requirements, starting with our own stock VFX platform, ActionVFX.
