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.

But thankfully, you can bring these landscape setpieces to your next project without any hassle! We have made sure to blend certain edges such as the foreground, meaning that your footage will blend into these lord-of-the-rings worthy landscapes easily! All you will need to do is to colour correct the image until it fits your scene.

All of the assets in our mountain collection have been created with creators in mind, making sure that the quality is great enough for you to scale, rotate and colour correct these assets to perfectly fit your scene without any loss in photorealism. With all of the backgrounds and foregrounds pre-keyed, you will be free from the exhausting process of doing it yourself, giving you the extra needed time to spend on your projects.

We have a huge variety of terrain to choose from, ranging from rocky mountains to tropical white-cliffed forests, you will be in no short supply of inspiration and content, so feel free to start browsing through our assets now!

HD Planet Textures for your Space Scenes

Download your HD realistic planet textures here!

Planets are the unchallenged champions of establishing shots, with the power to transport a viewer to the other side of the universe in an instant. This is why some of the most iconic imagery in cinema history has featured these planetary spacescapes. Think of almost every opening scene in Star Wars, or the first minute of 2001: A Space Odyssey. Wall-E does a great job of using planets for storytelling too, as viewers can see how our entire planet has become polluted into a brown-muddy looking ball in future history.

We’ve taken the step to create these ultra HD planet texture maps to help you build your own space-scenes. Knowing that the universe has too many planets to count, we’ve made sure to feature many variations such as deserts, volcanic and ice planets.

How do you create the planets? Well, these textures can be applied to spherical surfaces either in 3D modelling programs such as 3ds Max, Cinema4d or Blender. If you’re wanting to keep it simple with Adobe After Effects, you can use the CC Sphere effect (in the Perspective category) to make the planet even quicker! Game creators can apply these textures in Unity to help make their sci-fi game even more stunning!

We have gone ahead and built out additional maps for even more control, such as height maps and illumination maps for the volcanic planets, so 3D artists can take their renders even further by giving true detail to their terrain.
