  2. Thanks for the amazing time lapse footage. You have some truly amazing shots. It would be cool to see a really slow motion shot of fire burning against a black background.

  4. Hey,

    i love your timelapse-videos and i know that it costs some time to make it so thank you. I also have a suggestion: i think it would be nice to make a time-lapse video of a sportsgame!

  5. Amazing work here. For CG projects, footage of film grain (esp. dust and scratches, which are hardest to simulate digitally) would be great. Thanks for this terrific resource!

  6. Some building facade textures shot at night would be great. Cheers!

  7. Hey man,

    Just wanted to say this website is a great initiative!
    Fair play to you for taking the time to make these things and distributing them.

    If anything, more macro timelapses are always welcome.

    Keep up the good work!

  8. hey
    i love your work and specially hdri panoramas..i would like to see some large spherical panoramas with daylight and maybe sunsets, clouds without close trees.(the trees will generate green lights because hdri will be used as a light in 3d apps ).for use in cgi architectural visualisations)..like hdri from 3docean.net or panoramic skyes from cgtexures site.
    will be appreciate by many people..
    Thanks a lot

  9. great stuff keep it coming!

  10. Great footage, very useful!
    could do with some footage in a corn field (like for an alien landing movie)

    or driving past a cornfield (landscape type shot)

    or driving past a field with electricity pylons in it

    (Im a Visual effects editor and I want to have some moving footage of a field *not locked off camera* so i can 3d track the footage and add in 3D electricity pylons, I aim to create a scene where a space-ship crash lands and smashes down a pylon then digs into the cornfield.. (incredibly similar to the scene in Men in black 1, where the spaceship lands on the hillbilly’s car… except in my version the spaceship smashes through a pylon)

    sorry for going very in depth but im sure it shall assist you if you decide to shoot this footage

    Kind regards, kaine

  11. Fire would be much appriciated.
    Just a regular campfire would be great!

  12. Hello and again a thousand thanks to you and your -maybe existing- crew.
    Great site with just a bit to less content – yet. Would you say, you are able to get video footage of nature, maybe even like timelapse in single pictures? Please, say it… (:
    Thats a big deal I think, its easier to build “effective” electro videos, but that costs still a bit training for me, though – i do all by myself, so its a bit heavy sometime. But with the engagement, what I get with the thought, that I may can use free clips, pictures, footage and stuff, i aint get away from the pc. So help me building a square view…. please (: It would be really cool. It dont counts if its bears, trees dirt or whatever, at least ist wonderful nature!!

    Best regards & wishes,

    I like to produce free music (even if one or two pieces gets sold without video or such) and so I like free footage for building something to look at, in the time where the “user” lets his spirit fly – or else

  13. Great work!

    Comment by ariadna_woolf — 12. January 2011 @ 12:40

  14. I need film footage of families walking, having fun, daily activities or holding hands walking and married couples talking and holding hands, etc.

    Comment by Chris — 24. January 2011 @ 04:10

  15. I agree with Chris. Would be truly great to see people footage and even more incredible to have them choped from background 😛

    Cheers and if in this world there were more like you… there would be no war!

  16. Good ocean footage ( or large lake )for displacement maps is not easy to find and without whitecaps. And all ocean textures and generators I find are only good for one wave or close up or one frame and do not work well with displacement maps in animation. Just some ideas for ya. Water drops into pool without high contrast reflections and little below the surface color contrast ( like a black bottom ) so you get only wave shapes.

    Comment by Tony — 19. February 2011 @ 17:30

  17. Hey man, I love the work, especially the oceans and the storm clouds. How about something like food colouring or dyes into a clear glass of water or oil, with a backlight from the side or something? Something with fluids?

  19. Hi, if you had a time lapse of a flowering plant growing and then blooming, preferably from the side, that would be fantastic.

    I’d also really love a time lapse of a tree growing from nothing, but realize that that’s not really practical.

  22. Wow! Thanks so much for doing this. I need some good time-lapse video of cities at night, highways at night and traffic at night for a music video. I need to look through what you have. You may already have what I need.

    Comment by admin — 6. January 2012 @ 18:35

  27. Hi,
    please take this as a challenge:
    So someone can see the black spots and the texture of the surface by decreasing the exposure (I think that even NASA doesn’t have one 😉

  31. I want to share a website that explains how to use each HDRi with several 3D applications http://www.hdritutorial.com

    Comment by Miriam — 15. April 2013 @ 21:38

  32. Absolutely adore this site. Would be awesome if you included a section of HDRI panoramas based on fantasy – like matte paintings.
    Cheers and props for the stunning work!

    Comment by reddie — 26. May 2013 @ 23:05

  33. Thank you for this site
    Any plans to include waterfall footage?
    Nicely framed medium and long shots that include the WHOLE waterfall?
    Digital matte painters would love you for this…

  34. Hi, our web is on construction. I work with tribes in the Amazon. They are learning to make videos with one mac and one camera. I am looking for creative common footage they can use to tell their stories. So thank you for being so generous. you can look in vimeo for downsouthbytheriver and find some of their work. We are looking for shots from the amazon, specially shots that covers the amazon from the sky the forest and the rivers. If by any chance you know where I can find them it will be good.

    Comment by Monica Velarde — 21. November 2013 @ 15:13

  35. Hi Monica,
    I don´t have any footage of the amazon and there will not be any in the near future. Sorry you have to look somewhere else for that … good luck with your project!

  38. Might you have any footage of Mayflys or bugs on a river?

    Comment by Huan — 23. April 2014 @ 20:48

  39. Hello Huan,
    sorry currently no footage of this topic available…

    Comment by Markus — 27. April 2014 @ 06:22

  40. I need a flat desert scene with distant (1 to 2 km away) hills to one side. The beach scene was close but the greenery was more than the scene I am making needs. Also the desert ground is not sandy but is more of a flat land with scrubby green patches of grass widely scattered about.

    Comment by TimBo266 — 9. January 2016 @ 03:09

  41. Hi THere
    Please help me about “video editing studio” footage.
    I want to show the progress of film editing or audio recording in studio.
    thank you very much.

    Comment by Mina Es — 27. January 2016 @ 06:41

  42. Somehow I get the feeling this site is dead. Either that or the owner does not respond any further.

    Comment by TimBo266 — 28. January 2016 @ 05:19

  43. Hi TimBo, currently I have a lot of work so I have not the time to response quickly… Regarding your desert Hdri: Desert footages are on the top of my list I would like to do in the near future but regarding my work load it definitely takes some time until I have the chance to travel more…..
