  • Where To Find Background Video?

    I think this came up before on these boards but long before the video forums were added. I'm looking around trying to find some good background video I can incorporate into my own videos. Things like flying over cities/countryside/mountains or perhaps explosions and things like that preferably in .mov format.

    Any good sites with this kind of stuff down-loadable?

    Here's one I found:

      For the money you can't beat video copilot.

      actually they may not have panning helicopter shots of cities and countryside, but smoke, explosions, etc they are great for that kind of stuff.

        In my current situation free is best. I'm a total video/animation beginner and I'm trying to learn Anime Studio, Poser 8 and Final Cut Express so that I can make videos for my own songs. Unless something I do in the artist world actually generates income worthy interest my investment will remain at a hobby level.

          ahh ok, is there anything specific you're looking for? Youtube has lots of planes, bullets, etc on green screen backgrounds, so you can easily add them to your production. May be worth checking out to see if you can use anything from it.

          Just type in "green screen *whatever you're looking for*" like "Green screen jet" or "green screen bullet" for example.

            I wasn't aware that youtube videos could be downloaded, I don't see that option.

              just google "youtube downloader" there's several programs that'll do the trick.

              some of the green screen stuff may also have a direct link download in their description.

                    I did search around a bit and I saw some programs and players for gettin' at the youtube videos but I haven't moved forward with it yet because I'm not currently looking for anything specific and still have much book reading and hands on practicing to do learning my programs. To top it all off I recently agreed to do a fill in gig on keyboards playing a bunch of songs I don't yet know!

                      I have downloaded a bunch of random videos from YouTube of old home movies I am going to try and incorporate creatively...as long as I am not selling this...am I running into any legal problems? I am going to display the movies in such a way that you can barely tell what it is.
