    Hi all,

    Do you know where to find some nice 'free' stock footage to apply in our home made videos - I mean real free, not royalty free.

    Thank you very much.

    Maybe some public domain video from the national libraries? One place to try: http://www.archive.org/index.php

    You might also check your countries national library and see if they have video archives.

    at $8.41 S&H, they are still making $7 per disc, $70 per 10, $700 per 100, $7000 per 1000
    not saying there's anything wrong with the footage but you start to add all that up...month after month...year after year...not a bad profit for being marketed as "free"

    Hurry, there are only 500 copies available!
    Yep...and I'm the Pope

    I'm just saying it's clever marketing of their DVD's

    Given the price of standard stock footage, this is still a good deal. I have a handful of discs, which they sent halfway round the world at no extra charge. Often times you are paying hundreds of dollars for a single clip and for limited usage rights.

    They are just HD res Mov files. Because they are relatively short loops, you can get quite a few on a disc. Discs are just burned as data.

    I didn't see where they described them as data discs. If someone were to think they were regular DVD's and tried to cap from a stand-alone, it wouldn't play. I've been kicking around doing the same with footage I've already shot but I'm too busy shooting a short movie.
