Kick down a door with VFX!

Whether you’re making a dramatic entrance, or you just don’t like doors, kicking down doors with VFX can be an awesome addition to your movie.

We featured a shot in our Captain Marvel VFX tutorial that included just this, and now we’re showing you how we did it!

You can apply these steps to almost any software, so whether you have Blender, 3Ds Max, Maya or Cinema4D, you’ll be able to follow along. Likewise, most compositing software (After Effects, Premiere Pro) will be powerful enough for you to use these techniques.

Watch our quick tutorial on how you can create your own door-kick VFX!

New Bullet Hole Assets!

Too often do we overlook one of the must-have features of a gunfight in our VFX. Bullet holes!

I’ve seen a lot of fight scenes involving a shootout simply focus on the muzzle flashes, but seemingly jumping over the fact that for every bullet shot, there is some form of damage inflicted on the scene (unless they’re shooting into the air, perhaps at some unlucky ducks). We wanted to change this, by making it more accessible for VFX artists like you to create these effects quickly and easily.

Our collection of bullet hole graphics have been made specifically to fit any compositors needs, in a superbly large resolution. The pre-keyed alpha matte means it is already ready to be blended into whatever surface it is being applied to, whether that is metal, concrete, or even glass!

Our smashed glass collection is essential for any fight scene. These are the easiest to apply, just drop it over your glass, apply a screen blending mode to it, and voila!

We hope these HD bullet hole assets are a perfect addition to your VFX workflow. Download them all today!

Thinking of how you can make your scene even more explosive? Let us introduce you to our rubble collection.

New Rubble and Debris VFX!

Many artists try to avoid the deep end of the pool with their projects. Setting yourself up with an overly demanding goal will always push you to your limits, a goal such as turning your scene into a war-ravaged battleground!

But now, you can dive into the deep end will full confidence! We’re happy to present to you our latest collection of 25 rubble VFX assets to help you build the apocalyptic scenes you’ve always wanted!

Debris and rubble have always boosted the production value of movies. What would Transformers or Infinity War be without their absolutely breathtaking destruction (pretty underwhelming I guess)? With our rubble, paired with our gigantic collection of debris effects (available here on footagecrate), you can impress everyone with your cinema-worthy VFX and editing.
