Access a variety of free HD VFX assets on a green screen from explosions and fire effects to crowd extras and more.

Using designated composting software like After Effects, Nuke, or Davinci Resolve is always best if you are doing VFX. However, if you are working on a small project in a standard video editor like Capcut, you might need access to VFX stock footage on a green screen.

Here are some of our best-selling VFX collections in HD on a green background. Feel free to download these YouTube videos to use the royalty-free clips in your projects.

If you’re looking for production-quality VFX assets, explore our expansive VFX library.
