A very good suggestion for the site

I think that an example clip database would be very well appreacieated by everyone! Maybe you only can download them if you have a fxhome product. Just a thought, smile

Example clips of what?

If you mean of the presets, it has been discussed in the pst, and I believe it is planned for the future, but will take some time. I'm not sure when you might actually see it...

I think he means having a whole database of little movie clips whose special effects were done in fxhome products. Then people could download them and really see what the products are capable of.

Isn't this what the movie section is for? Or the flash montages in the product sections?

Though maybe a product movie will be made eventually like AlamDV2...

I agree with Armageddon1212 that it would be nice if there were a whole database of clips that are just fx, showing how different effects engine or grading can be done etc. There are already a few of these on the site, but it would be nice if there were more, and they were downloadable. Its not as practical for people to download an entire movie just to search through and find the parts they think were done with fxhome products. Also, if the sample clips were done by the fxhome team, we'd know that the movies would be showing the fullest potential of the fxhome products.

I dont think this is such a priority, but Armageddon1212 does have a point that it would be quite nice to have such a database.

I mean like stock footage ready to use! Im having difficulty using the alamdv one though. But instead of having the forum for requests you could have a whole data base for everyone.

FXvault has been on hold this year as other things took proirity. We really want to start working on it soon, as there does seem to be lots of demand for a decent stock footage library.

I like that fxvault idea a lot! For now, though, use detonation films footage. ( www.detonationfilms.com )

I think having a stock footage place on fxhome would be absolutely fantastic (especially if it would be free). Maybe you guys could make it so anyone can add some of their stock footage (for force points maybe?), so that way it would be really a good library of footage wink.
