they all claim Roralty-free, but only try to hook you up. They show you a stamped 160x240 for free, but never free on full resolution clips....

thanks for that... I think I used it a few years ago for some stock footage while in school to complete a project but had forgotten all about it. I just found some great footage in an old Universal Newsreel for use in my current project in the archives.

What a great idea

For example, I could easily go out and shoot the Palace of Westminster or rolling English countryside but if I want a sunset in the Arizona desert I'd be stuffed.

What do others think?

Wow, Swap Shop, that takes me back to my childhood, I love it.
Roger I like your way of thinking. There's a lot of us on very low budgets who can not afford Royalty free Stock footage and I think you are on to something there.

I think what Jeff Donald said about copyright would not be a problem if we as the users agreed that this would be copyright free material for what ever purposes we wanted it for.
I would think the bigger problem would be that there would be so much stuff (and some of it, not so good) that the webspace and bandwidth would be more of a problem for dvinfo, especially if this was to be full quality hi def footage. The solution for that could be that we upload small thumbnail previews or limit the size and then contact the user for a full quality download.

"Are any moderators, admin listening"
This is a great idea that Roger is onto here, so please please make this happen. I would be more than happy to supply some footage and it could even inspire me to go out and shoot more stuff.

Maybe we could run a poll on this, see how many people are interested and are willing to supply short clips. It would certainly make a nice addition to this forum.

If there are any other threads or discussions on this topic, if someone could point me in the right direction it would be appreciated.

Thanks for listening people, and keep up the good work.

perhaps we can use Wikimedia commons to host. They already have several videos of with a choose your own license function. Wikimedia might compress the video. Not sure.

Category:Video - Wikimedia Commons

I am seriously considering creating some public domain material....

Say I download the MPEG2 version of this film: Internet Archive: Free Download: Panorama Ephemera

I am allowed to pull specific clips from it and reuse them in my own works, so long as I follow this license agreement: Creative Commons — Attribution-Noncommercial 1.0 Generic

Considering I can get a hi-res of the film, this seems too good to be true. Can anyone verify/clarify how this footage can be used?

It's not too good to be true - it's just that most of that stuff was shot using government money, and as such, is public domain. Be sure to check specifically on the licensing of each item though, just to be safe that something proprietary doesn't make its way in there.

The exact quote on usage from the site is:

"You are warmly encouraged to download, use and reproduce these films in whole or in part, in any medium or market throughout the world. You are also warmly encouraged to share, exchange, redistribute, transfer and copy these films, and especially encouraged to do so for free.

Any derivative works that you produce using these films are yours to perform, publish, reproduce, sell, or distribute in any way you wish without any limitations. "

They also have additional footage available with written licensing agreements through Getty Images - but those come at a cost. The hi-res stuff you can download right off their site falls under the free licensing mentioned above.

Hi,

Just so I've got this right, I can use any of the footage off this website for free? I'm not really up todate on copyright. We covered it in our course, but that was a couple of years ago.
What do i need to do if i use any/mutiple clips? Can any one shed some light please.

Thanks

I'm interested of two shots of an airplane from HD Stock Footage - High Definition Video Stock Footage - Royalty Free Stock Footage but I am unsure if I am allowed to use these because it's for a project for a client in which I would be profiting. Furthermore, I can't find out if they remove the watermark or not.

Can anyone shed some light on making profit while using PURCHASED stock,royalty free footage?

The Digital Media will be made available by Lincesor as Quicktime .MOV (a product of Apple Computer) files in either the Photo-JPG codec (progressive) or the MotionJPEG-B codec (interlaced). Licensee acknowledges that the camera-native codec is not native to most editing systems, and must therefore be purchased from a third party vendor. Licensor takes every effort to minimize any compression artifacts. While DV compression is very light, compression artifacts can occur, most commonly "stair-stepping" on diagonal lines and "mosquito noise" near high-contrast boundaries. Licensor disclaim all warranties and conditions with respect to these potential artifacts within Licensor content. Licensor MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS WITH REGARD TO THE DIGITAL MEDIA FILES AND ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE AND/OR NONINFRINGEMENT ARE HEREBY DISCLAIMED.

The parties agree that any claim asserted in any legal proceeding by one party against the other shall be commenced and maintained exclusively in a state or federal court located within Mobile County, Alabama, having subject matter jurisdiction with respect to the dispute between the parties (except that a judgment by such courts may be enforced by any court). Both parties hereby submit to the jurisdiction of such courts over each of them personally in connection with such litigation, and waive any objection to venue in such courts and any claim that such forum is an inconvenient forum.
Injunctive and Other Equitable Relief. Licensee agrees that the remedy at law for any breach or threatened breach of this Agreement by Licensee would, by its nature, be inadequate, and that in such case Licensor will be entitled, in addition to damages, to a restraining order, temporary and permanent injunctive relief, specific performance and other appropriate equitable relief, without showing or providing that any monetary damage has been sustained.
Assignment. Licensee may not assign or otherwise transfer this Agreement or any rights hereunder without the prior written consent of Licensor. A transfer of controlling interest in any entity shall constitute an assignment.
Entire Agreement. This is the entire agreement between the parties with regard to the subject matter hereof. It supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements, understandings, or representations with respect to the Digital Media Files. This Agreement may not be modified or amended except in a writing signed by both parties.

Why don't you just ask them? Their phone and email is right at the bottom of the EULA. They can give you a much more definitive answer than any of us could.

I think your answer as to your prospective general usage is here:

General Use Grant. The Digital Media Files may be incorporated into a derivative work such as a film feature, video, broadcast, multimedia work, advertisement, live performance, internet website, presentation or print project.
Restrictions on Products for Resale. The Digital Media Files and any derivative work thereof may not, in whole or in part, be used, sold, sublicensed, reproduced, distributed, displayed, incorporated into or otherwise made available as templates, standalone backgrounds, stock elements, effects imagery elements or downloadable files. The Digital Media Files and any derivative work thereof may not, in whole or in part, be included in any other clip media/stock product, library, collection, or set of clips for distribution or resale. These Restrictions apply even if the Digital Media Files have been significantly altered. If Digital Media Files are used in a project that is over three (3:00) minutes long that will be reproduced, sold or distributed (DVDs, home videos, music videos, training videos, etc.) the Digital Media Files may not comprise more than 25% of the length of the finished work, even if the Digital Media Files are layered with other graphics, nor may the primary value of the product come from the Digital Media Files. The Digital Media Files are strictly prohibited from being used as screen savers.

In short, your profit motive is not the issue. They just don't want you reselling the footage yourself as a stand alone, or making a movie mainly out of their stock footage. This is a fairly common license from what I have seen.

The watermark issue you'll have to talk to them about.

This is a little different to the normal stock footage but might be of some use to other people.

VJ Loops
HD and also SD and pretty cheap. More abstract than anything but never the less stock.

Re: Royalty Free Stock Video

I have set up a Free Stock Video Clips Channel on Vimeo.com. The Video Clips on the site are always FREE, and can be used for any purpose. Business or Personal. However, I will accept donations should you feel so led. The web site is pretty self explanatory, and I will try to add a few new 1080p clips daily.

https://vimeo.com/channels/freestockvideoclips

enjoy,

Re: Royalty Free Stock Video

Interesting concept, where a sort of "wanted" forum would exist for members to put out what they are looking for, maybe what they are willing to pay if needed, etc.

Two things spring to mind why this is an issue. The first is simply bandwidth.. both internet and storage. I've wondered how much storage some of these stock footage sites require. One of my ideas to make some money was to buy a RED scarlet (back when it was going to be 3K!!) and shoot RAW footage of anything and everything. The amount of storage for solid 3K to 4K RAW is ridiculous. That costs money. Even with today's cheap storage offerings, it's still not cheap when you think about multi-gigiabytes for small clips. That's assuming the site it's hosted on can convert it to different sizes if need be. I think today's entry level computers can handle 1080P decently, but my guess is handling 4K raw is still not the norm for most people's computers?

The other factor would be licenses as one poster (the warden) said. My thought on this is..what if I requested some footage from a fellow member. Couldn't they put some sort of visual indicator at the start of the clip say, that guarantees it's genuine and not a copy of someone else? Like if I shot a 4K RAW footage of the redwoods, forest, etc.. and at the start of each clip I put my face or a clapper or something with verifiable information, wouldn't that be enough (along with perhaps a document of some sort if necessary)?

Re: Royalty Free Stock Video

I'm moving my Free Stock Video Footage from Vimeo Channels https://vimeo.com/channels/freestockvideoclips to Vimeo Groups (https://vimeo.com/groups/freestockvideoclips). Groups appears to work better for individuals who are searching for specific clips, than does the Channels option.

Watch for new clips weekly.

Future clips Include:

Scenery
Marine Biology
Geology
Flora
Fauna
Marine Mammals
Grizzly/Brown Bears
Land Mammals
Weather
Commercial Fishing
Sport Fishing
Fly Fishing
Streams/Fish
Alaska Native Art/Subsistence
Tour/Tourism
Historic/Cultural Sites
Coast Guard
Float Planes & Small Aircraft

Enjoy,

Re: Royalty Free Stock Video

David,

If you don't mind me asking, how do you capture your stock footage? Are you owning (or renting) a RED or something to record in high res RAW? Do you submit it as RAW if that is the case, or if not do you do any editing before submitting it? I am curious what the workflow is like to shoot and deliver stock footage. I thought of buying a RED (back when the Scarlet was going to be 3K in price) to shoot Red Raw for stock footage. Looks like I may be going the route of the 4K BM Cinema Camera to get stock footage now at 4K resolution. Anyway, I am just curious how others shoot stock footage, what their editing/deliver workflow is like?

Thank you.
