Where can I obtain the beach video footage used in the FXhome demo. This the one where the female walks from a green background onto a live beach.
Thanks, Jim

A fair bit of the background footage used by the FXhome team in their promos comes from www.istockphoto.com . It would definitely be worth looking around that site for what you need. They have an assortment of similar stuff, and their prices are quite reasonable.

Actually, that particular shot was done by me here in Maui by special request from
Tarn. A place known as Big Beach.

I also shot the one where Tarn is walking from right to left as he is silhouetted by the sunset.

Yeah, Garrison very kindly went and shot a few bits and pieces for us several years back. We don't have many tropical beaches here in Norwich, you see. razz

Backgrounds generally come from one of two possible places:

1. You make it yourself.
2. You get it from a stock footage website, such as iStockPhoto.com.

In this case we made it ourselves, albeit through the proxy of Garrison's skills and beautiful island!
