Compositing Assets

Hi, I was just wondering if there's a place where you can grab free-to-use assets for video compositing.

For example, I want to composite some trees infront of my footage, and I was wondering if there is a site where you can download assets like trees, hanging vines, shrubbery, all with alpha channel enabled.


Thanks!

Ooohhh, that's going to be a tall order, especially for free. Usually people make these things on project-by-project basis if they need it.

There are some still-image stock footage places that sell such things, but they're usually limited to flowers, bouquets... stuff like that.

If it's stills you want, http://www.sxc.hu rocks. For video, well, good luck searching.

Yep, it's stills :)

That site looks awesome, thanks.

I also found a free plugin that generates pretty real looking Ivy around 3D objects without any advanced placement or settings. You just click grow and it starts to wrap around your object. Amazing!
