Why Choose ActionVFX?

Changing the way you work

As you get more familiar with us, you will find many reasons why we stand out from our VFX stock footage competitors, but for now we’ve compiled a list of just a few main points that make us the top choice for your VFX element needs. 

We’re a product of the VFX Community
You guys literally gave birth to us. We started with a vision, but you brought it to life.  

Before our crowdfunding process, we surveyed over 300 professionals within the VFX industry and asked them what improvements they needed to see in action stock footage. They helped guide us to discover many areas that are lacking from pre-existing visual effects assets. 

We were surprised to find out how many requests were for simple things, like keeping the effects in frame, avoiding overexposure, etc. Not only did we implement those things, but this helped us make our products so much better than we could have ever made ourselves.  

In November of 2015 we launched a 30-day Kickstarter campaign with the overall goal of $20,000. By the end of the 30-day period, we had reached over $59,000, funding our goal 296%. This is a huge indication to us of how big the demand for quality VFX assets are.

Unmatched Quality
We correctly captured our assets with the Red Epic Dragon. This camera shoots at a high dynamic range, which provides great latitude and detail. 

When filming, we took the time to double and triple check calibration of our exposure between takes. This was a major point that we had to get right, if any of our shots were not exposed correctly, then they wouldn’t match up with your final comp.  

We also wanted to make sure that users wouldn’t have to worry about our effects leaving the frame. For example, if an explosion asset leaves the frame and you want to rescale it to fit your scene, you would have to go through the tedious process of masking and feathering the edges, and trying to hide the faults of the effect. 

Quality is the name of our game, which is why we offer the original unkeyed 10-bit files that were shot in .R3D which means there is more detail retained. All of these features give you a lot more options with the assets when you get them into post. 

Lifetime Licensing: Buy once, use forever
There can sometimes be confusion with the legality of using a certain asset in a project that is being aired on TV, feature films, music videos, or other forms of monetization. 

With our Lifetime Licensing program, you only have to buy the effect once, then it is yours forever. As long as you’re not directly selling it, you can use it for any project you want. This is just another thing we didn’t want you to have to worry about. 

Are all of your co-workers getting jealous of your sexy explosive compositions? We make it easy to add products for more than one user, we also provide highly discounted volume options for corporate and enterprise licensing.  

If you ever have any questions on our Lifetime Licensing program, please feel free to shoot us an email at [email protected]

We hope to keep improving our website and adding to our library of effects. As always, if you have any suggestions for us on what we can do better, be sure to let us know.
