THAT Studio Effects are a collection of Visual Effects (smoke, fire, flames, muzzle flashes, ice, snow and much more) that can be dragged and dropped on top of your footage and give you immediate, high-quality, professional visual effects. They work in every editing system, from Premiere Pro to Final Cut Pro and even iMovie or After Effects!
Yes. As Indie content creators ourselves, we understand you want the content to follow you wherever you go and be used in whatever you do. You licensed the content. You can use it, without restrictions, on any project, from feature films to television and anything in-between. You can read our full, probably boring, Terms of Service, if you want.
We did this on purpose, so everyone can afford the product. We hope this encourages everyone to purchase their own copy (piracy is bad), so we can keep creating great content every month and add it to your existing account.
Once you purchase THAT Studio Effects, you will receive a private download link to your private licensed content. Whenever we do an update, you will receive an email letting you know new content is available. You can either use the email provide link to the new content, or your original private download link.
You will never lose your license. Once you purchase THAT Studio Effects, you have a royalty-free license to this content. Your content will be available to you online as a download or in your library, once you've downloaded the files. If we ever decide to retire THAT Studio Effects, we email you and let you know with plenty of time to download everything.
If you are using Adobe Premiere Pro, it's easy; just drag the clip you want into the timeline, select the correct "Blend Mode", and experience a beautiful, high quality overlay of Snow, Smoke, Fire, Fog, Flame and other great effects. Our friend Maxim Jago has a fantastic tutorial on Blend Modes in Premiere Pro over at Video2Brain/Lynda.com.
Yes! But, that's like saying, "Isn't your film just a bunch of Quicktimes?" The great thing about Quicktime files is they work in any NLE or software which supports Quicktime. And, like your beautiful and unique footage, everything in THAT Studio Effects was shot with the goal of creating the best footage available.
You never have to worry about compatibility. When you upgrade your software, everything will still work without requiring any updates.
