CUT*PACKS | FAQs
WHAT IS A CUT*PACK
It is simply a curated or themed collection of video clips. Most sites license individual clips, but as this is all our footage and you won't find it anywhere else, we have control and we curate our footage into each 'CUT*PACK'. They all vary, but they are generally between 6 and 20 clips in a CUT*PACK but please check each CUT*PACK for exact details.
HOW DO I DOWNLOAD THE FOOTAGE I’VE LICENSED?
After you purchase a CUT*PACK, you’ll immediately be given access to a download link for a zip folder of the MP4s.
WHAT FORMAT AND ENCODING ARE THE VIDEO FILES?
Depends on what you're looking at. We currently have 4k (4096x2160) and HD (1920x1080) and they are available to use as MP4.
CAN I PREVIEW THE FOOTAGE PRIOR TO MAKING A PURCHASE?
Of course. We use Youtube to preview our CUT*PACKS. In the product page you can see an embedded youtube video. Play it and you get to see a low-res version of what you'll be purchasing.
ARE THE VIDEO FILES COMPATIBLE WITH MY EDITING PROGRAM?
Clips are provided in MP4 format. If you need another format, just contact us here.
HOW CAN I CONVERT VIDEO FILMES FROM ONE FORMAT TO ANOTHER?
We are ADOBE fans and use ENCODER but we also recommend HANDBRAKE which is an open-source free video transcoder that you can download right here. It lets you convert from most common containers to ones suitable for most applications.
WHAT ABOUT ROYALTY FREE?
Everything we have is Royalty Free (RF) which means you pay to license the footage once upfront, without the need to pay any additional or ongoing fees. You can see the license details page here if you have any usage questions, or contact me here.
ARE SOME CLIPS INCLUDED IN MULTIPLE CUT*PACK?
Nope. Every clip is only included in one CUT*PACK. There might be similar shots, but we never use the same shot twice. (You can see that in our commercial work as well!)
WE'RE FROM AN NGO / NON-PROFIT ORGANISATION. CAN WE HAVE A DISCOUNT?
Definitely. We've worked for many years with a number of non-profits and NGOs. It helps if you are a registered 501(c)(3) but please just email us with details of the project and the business and we'll make a discount apply.
If you have any other questions or you think i've missed something just email me right here and i'll get back to you right away.
