Too bad EA are a bunch of evil sons of *****. They'd probably want to charge you a fee for using their sounds in a non-profit internet film.

Yeah, I was just about to say that. I used the CSS sounds in one of my short pictures from a while ago, and I know there's probably no way I'll be able to use them in a commercial picture. Which by the way really sucks.

scroll down to the sound pack, click download, scroll down, choose east/west coast or europe, copy the code above the text box and click download.

I had to try a few locations on one sound pack.

Just a technical correction here,

EA didn't make BF2, they published it. DICE did all the work in creating the game itself and I imagine they also recorded or created all the sound effects too.

I know some people who work for comercials and movie making they used even other movies sounds for funs explosion etc... They told me theres no way they can know if ursmart only usegun sounds. the reason for that as a former member is the marines i can tell you all guns from games and movies and in real life sounds exactly the same. If you even cut a sound short or so will make it even more so difficult. In the movies they do it and there is noway they can know. Mr. and mrs. smith used sounds from movies and they never got cought. pay attention to the gun sceane its from themovie heat. they didint even cut it short it sounds the same even in the same sequence. Do it and see nobody gives a dam.

Well, they had a multimillion dollar company behind their backs just in case a lawsuit came around.

Us, however, can't afford a lawsuit. But if what you say is true, I'd sure as hell love to use the Counter-Strike Source sounds in commercial movies. I was considering e-mailing VALVe asking if I could use it for a non-commercial product too.

Well if you look at it an m16 sounds like every other m16. There is absolutly no way they can find out. If you fear to still use it. Edit it in sound forge qadd some distortion and make instaed of rapid gun fire 2 shots at a time. Ither way it's undetectable. My freind also told me alot fear that using non legitimite software and other bootlegs are bad cause they have people that go around and check that is false also. Now if your still worried theres sitesout there that for 30 bux you can get royalty free gun sounds that are realy awsome. Ofcorse you can always do what i did couple of times when i was in highschool and thats way back that recorde sounds of from a firing range. you can ask cops or military most are nice about it some are asses. Ask it doesin't hurt. If you want i dont want to make empty promises but i am thinking of compiling a cd and acualy go back to recorde some sounds. I'm busy now but ill try to get on it and ill upload to fxhome users the sounds. I know it's a struggle. I looked for sounds alotmy self and it sux. I'll see what i cando to help on the matter.

I'll give you force if you really go to a firing range and get some *high quality* samples!

I'd be eternally grateful if you did that.

I really don't think anybody is going to get upset if you have used their sound effects, first of all, with guns, it's very hard to prove copyright of the sound clip, and no 2, sound designers are ALWAYS stealing sound clips from other movies, ever heard of the WILHELM scream! Unless your a keen sound designer, I doubt you have, but it's one of the most used sound effect ever and dates back too 1951, when the scream was recorded for the film "distant drums". It has been used in countless films, many big name directors actually ask to have the sound effect put in their films, like Quentin Tarantino (who actually called a break from Reservoir Dogs mix so that he and his sound crew could watch "Distant Drums" on a local station to hear the scream) and Peter Jackson.
It has been used in such films as starwars, indiana Jones, Willow, Poltergeist, batman returns, Planet of the Apes, toy story, pirates of the Caribbean, lord of the rings and even the recent Madagascar, plus many many more ( full list here). Most of the films did not have permission to use this effect.
If your worried about getting in to trouble, you can always pick up a copy of royalty free sound effects. There are hundreds available, some cheap, some more expensive (Apocalypse Now Sound Effects.)

i do not condone bootlegs or at least im supposed to say that. my advice buy a cheap nle like from ulead or something. any movie maker thats cheap know how to use it and then do ur effects and grading on fxhome products only . I love adobe i support their software i have legit copies of their items but they are costly and odds are people who get the bootlegs would never pay 600-900 bux for the prog anyways so i dont think it effects there biz. My advice would be they have student packages that are cheap ask around or google it. I think the cheap progs can do the compositing well enofe. I used the cheap progs before and did weddings and such same crap believe me. so edit on a cheap prog andput fxhome effects and grading in it andu will have an excelent picture.

I suggest Adobe Premiere Elements 2.0. I bought it [student discount] for 70$. Regular is 100$. It's probably the best you'll get for such a cheap price. I love it.

Yeah, elements is awesome. My friend has it and there are very few differences between it and pro. You lose a bit of effeciancy, but you save like $800.

What do you do in Premiere Pro that you couldn't do in a cheaper NLE (or even a free one, like MovieMaker or Avid Free DV?

If you're using pirated software, discretion may be a good idea - i.e. don't post on forums admitting to it.

Not necessairly. As you know, Counter Strike guns make very distinct sounds from any other game. Anyone can easily point out if an M16 sound came from counter strike or not. Anyways, the BF2 sound pack is really nice.

Lol....dig yourself out of a hole.
As far as I know, there is no way for anybody to know weither you used a legit copy or a cracked. But "your friend" should know better than to steal. Bootlegging is one of the film industries biggest problems, and using cracked versions of editing suites such as premier IS STEALING!
Let us all hope that "your friend" will turn over a new leaf for the new year and stop being naughty.

As I asked above, what does your "friend" do in Pro that he couldn't do in a cheap or free NLE?
