Anyone use VideoTraxx before?

Anyone use this DVD set? What are your thoughts? How hard is it to match their footage with your camera's footage (Dvx100)?

Thanks.

I'm also interested to hear if anyone's used it.

I looked at the examples online and wasn't overly blown away. But there are some good things in there and the price is pretty great.

You'd almost play that same amount for just a handful of clips. With Videotraxx you get over 3000, so if only 10% are really good it's still a good deal.

The only thing really holding me back is that I was pretty dissapointed in the medical section on the website. I hope to hear from someone that's used the collection and find out if there's more medical stuff than represented on the site.

Bryan,
I bought it and then returned it. I DO think it's worth it, but only if your audience is primarily anglo. There was NO diversity in the clips and it was hard for me to target the hispanic market down here in South Texas. Another comment is that most of the water footage had mountains in the background. This made it hard for me to match the Videotraxx footage with my own local footage.

Good to know Nick, thanks.

Do you remember anything about the medical stuff?
