Downloads - Free HD Green Screen Plates and Footage to experiment with
Free HD Green Screen and VFX Plates you can download and play around with! It has always irritated us that there are no green screen and VFX plates around the internet you can just download and play with -- everything is owned by some production. So we decided to donate some of the interesting plates from Visual Effects For Directors to the community, so you can download them and practice keying, matchmoving, compositing, tracking, and much more! YOU MAY: Use the clips any way you want and post the results anywhere. But let us know if you do something cool!YOU MAY: Use the clips to make instructional videos or teach a class, as long as you mention us. These HD plates are 1080p and 720p, shot with an HVX-200, usually at 100 MBps DVCPROHD.The plates have limitations that weren't important to us because we had specific needs, but for film production, we don't consider them good enough. Please download only the stuff you need.

ORA Prophecy - .work The Prophecy video is teaching via an abstract journey through an evolving space; a theoretical exploration of mankind’s black hole, and the dissonance created in a perfect void.

The project Story of ButtleOFX It all started in 2007, when actors of a collaborative project which gathered post production companies and academic institutions brought up the idea of TuttleOFX, an open source modular and sustainable image processing architecture. Today, TuttleOFX is a growing software composed of an OpenFX plugin set (IO, color transformations, geometry, text burn, …) and a nodal engine usable in C++, in Python or directly in command lines. The desire to build a user interface based on TuttleOFX gradually increased and has been strengthened by a strong need of a simple but complete compositing solution for the VFX open source community.

StoryCorps 9/11 Stories StoryCorps has released a set of animated short films telling the stories of people whose loved ones died during the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001. StoryCorps is an independent nonprofit whose mission is to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives.

BANG!  The Anatomy of Explosions MUNITIONS - the Atomic Bomb Cont.

The two or more subcritical masses must be brought together to form a supercritical mass at the time of detonation. To bring the subcritical masses together into a supercritical mass, two techniques are used; Gun-triggered and Implosion.
