Spaceship Sound Effects Pack

 

Spaceships, done right, can be iconic.

 

They’re a character in their own right. Just think about your favorite spaceship. The Millennium Falcon, Serenity, Battlestar Galactica, Starship Enterprise, they’re all as much a part of your favorite movies and shows as the actors are.  The best ships are the ones that have personality (figuratively or often literally), quirks, a unique look, and  most importantly, great sound.

These are best composited using a screen or additive blending mode. In some of our file formats, the particle shockwaves have the alpha channel built-in. speeding up your compositing workflow.

We provide these in 4 file formats:

  • Zipped PNG sequence
  • Zipped ProRes
  • MOV (PNG)
