2k ProRes downloads
available immediately

Get the job done fast! While your drive is in transport you can access the full collection via 2k ProRes downloads. That way you can get started working immediately after purchase. In most cases the 2k downloads will be more than adequate to create finished professional shots. However, in cases when 2k simply isn't sufficient, you can still use the 2k files as proxies or placeholders until the higher resolution files arrive via hard drive.

Pre-Keyed Footage

All clips are provided with an alpha channel (except Atmosphere, Bubbles, Lens Flares and Distant Rain which are the only categories without an alpha.) We use a combination of techniques to pull mattes on the clips, saving you time and effort. Our mattes preserve the high-dynamic range, contrast and color rendition of each clip.

Drag and Drop Usability

The perfect fit for your pipeline! Enjoy awesome time-saving features and intuitive interaction. Because our ProRes files are pre-keyed you can easily drag and drop them into your composition or timeline to get started working instantly.

Prefer to create your own alpha channel?

With the R3D files on the hard drive you'll have full access to the original camera files and all the extra resolution and color depth therein. If you have your own workflow and keying techniques then the R3D option is for you.

  1. The native resolution of each shot was determined by the limitations of the camera model used (RED Helium). In order to shoot at a higher fps the resolution necessarily had to be decreased. Thus, when shooting at 120fps it was required that we use a resolution of 4k.
  2. Modern RED cameras are capable of capturing a wide dynamic range suitable for HDR production. We go to great efforts to prevent our footage from clipping (overexposure), however, some categories such as pyro do occasionally have clipped highlights.
  3. The following categories do not contain an alpha channel: Air Particles, Atmosphere, Burning Steel, Glitter, Light Leaks, Motion Textures and a few of the clips in the Drinks pack.
  4. R3D files are only available via the physical hard drive
