I don't think there would be a video showing you all of the effects if that is what you mean but it worth buying.
The videos are great quality and stunning effects(not computer effects explosions,sparks smoke real footage)

You get 50 HD clips which are all in the format ".mov" as default, in which you need quicktime to playback. You also get about a 1000 or so clips, in the "Clip Art" folder with are taken from Fxhome>Downloads>AlamDV2 Plugins> These are also ".mov" format. You also have two folders inside the HD stock footage folder: NTSC and PAL. Which are two different television brodcasting systems, NTSC being in America mainly and PAL I believe mainly in Europe. You can go on Wikipedia for more information on that. You get the stock footage in a physical DVD in which you can then put into your computer and transfer the files amounting up to about 4.35 GB in size.


And yes all of the HD clips are real, as far as I know, and came from No Control Cinema's stock footage packs, a member here Solthar I believe owns that company. But the ~1000 clips from the "Clip Art" folder are not all real footage, alot of them are 3d modles of vehicals or other things, but they also have pictures of planets, real and fake, and some, maybe all (I've only looked at a few so far) are prekeyed and are ready for quick use in any of the Lab products or video editing.
software.


Stockfootage is very helpful to creat realistic effects that are safe, easy (if planned right) and very effective. Hope this helped.

**Anyone correct me if I'm wrong on anything, Thanks**

You are correct. The stock footage is 50 selected clips of our stock footage collection at http://www.nccinema.ch

All real footage and easily keyable.

We don't have demovideos either as of yet, but I plan o adding them soon.

Allthough you might notice, our stock collection is much larger then the 50 clips featured on the FXhome collection. It's a small selection of clips with about 2 or 3 variations each.
