A lot of Visual Effects we see in big-budget action movies won’t be possible without the VFX stock footage elements. With advancements in camera technology and 8K shooting capability, filmmakers prefer using stock footage for VFX rather than spending time and resources on creating practical effects.

Cost is also the major reason behind this. VFX stock footage elements cost a lot less than creating the same effect practically on set. Moreover, you pay once for the VFX stock footage elements and can use them as many times as you like.

Energy FX plays a major role in sci-fi adventure films and creating such an effect practically is just not possible. However, to make the impossible possible, ActionVFX came up with 10 bundles that contain more than 250 very high-quality Energy FX stock footage for creating professional visual effects.

If you are familiar with Video Copilot’s Action Essentials Pack, then ActionVFX is an alternative. However, it’s much BETTER!

ActionVFX includes ExplosionsFireBullet Hits, Blood & Gore, Dust, Debris, Impacts, Particles, Smoke, water, and of course –  Energy FX stock footage.
