Full Motion Video Backgrounds


imaref1

Question

I found a great site with free video motion backgrounds that work Roxio 10 (MyDVD) here http://www.ignitemotion.com/

 

Once you get to the site (make sure you have a high speed internet connection), hold down the CTRL key and click on the one that you want to download--a new tab will open in your browser (you MUST have Quicktime installed). Once the video file starts playing in the new tab, right click and choose "Save Source As..." and put it where you want.

 

Open up Mydvd, right click on the menu that comes up and choose "Change Background". From the window, go to the place where you stored the new styles and click on the one that you want to use.

 

Not bad for free! They are all .mov files and seem to work fine. There are even HD ones.

 

Enjoy.

Yeah, but i buy the stuff on sale which is usually $9.99 - $14.99. I have been tempted several times to purchase more. LOL

 

Yep, found the "Sale" section and there is a good pile to choose from. I downloaded much of the free stuff, linked my wife to it and she got it. Heck, she is already using a lot of the motion backgrounds and SoundTraxx for some stuff she is working on for her family.

 

My God....now there will be something NEW for me to learn and spend money on. Gee, should I say "Thanks" :D or "Thanks" :angry: lol

www.digitaljuice.comYes, they do sell their newest stuff. Check their 'downloads' section. YOu may have to sign up to get their newsletters, but worth it. They have still images, audio loops, motion design elements and motion backgrounds. Most of these are from there older packages, but still great stuff.

 

I signed up with digitaljuice a week ago but haven't figured out where or how to get any free downloads. I'm missing something, aren't I? :wacko:

If you click on the home page link Gary put up you should then be able to click on the Downloads tab. The Tab at the right then shows Free downloads. I haven't tried it yet, but planned to and that's how I thought it would work.

Thanks for the link, imaref. After downloading one of the clips and bringing into MyDVD, I clicked on Edit Menu background and, when the VideoWave screen opened, I chose Output As ... and output the clip as an both mpg2 and dv-avi files. Then I closed MyDVD and opened VideoWave. I was able to bring either file (mpg2 or dv-avi) into VideoWave to add to a production.

Thanks for the links gang. Great stuff!

 

At Digital Juice, you do have to register AND sign up for the DJ Newsletter to get the free stuff.

 

ggrussell. have you bought any of their products? If so, how are they? There are some great looking, less expensive programs that might be worth the money for home use. Dunno. Lots of great stuff there.

Yes, I have bought about 10 or so from Digital Juice. Very high quality. In fact, American Idol uses DJ motion backgrounds on their show. When they are singing, watch the huge video screen behind them. ALL Digital Juice stuff. ;)

 

The native format is Quicktime and haven't had any problems using the files as is. The included Juicer 3 software will also allow you to export out portions of a clip and/or change colors, etc.

Why did yo do that? Videowave can use Quicktime MOV files directly. Just add the MOV to your Videowave production.

 

Thanks iamref1 for that site. Some nice backgrounds to add to my collection. ;) I'll bookmark that so I can keep checking back!

Got some more to share.

 

The first one is the best: http://www.movietools.info/ Wow! Get your broadband connections humming...

 

 

 

This one's pretty good: http://www.stockfootageforfree.com/ Mostly outdoor footage (waterfalls, beaches, etc.)

 

 

 

For our foreign friends (the users of the PAL): http://www.creative-content.de/de/products.../free_stuff.htm ALL DV-PAL (thought some of you could use them)

 

 

I found a couple more, but they are lower quality--might be better for video stock footage than for dvd menus:

 

http://www.open-video.org/ TONS of footage but not real high quality--might be good to use in video projects but not really for dvd menus

 

http://www.thecliparchive.com/clip_archivekatho.php Mostly fireworks

 

http://www.hitthebongo.co.uk/videofx/2005/...op-effects.html Mostly shapes and blobs

Cool, thanks Gary. I tried it early on and it didn't take so I thought it was a limitation. Heh, turns out it was just a limitation of karri lol :) Thanks again imaref.

Digital Juice uses Quicktime format and I haven't had any trouble with those files. I just tried one of these and it worked fine fro me in Videowave as is. All the one I saw were HD 720p. Those should render fine at standard def, too. I already have close to 5GB of motion backgrounds and still images. I may have to get a separate drives just for this stuff. LOL

Some great links. I like movietools. It will take me forever to go thru them all. I think there's a problem with the stock footage site. At least for me it seems to be very, very slow but I'll try at another time.
