Volcanoes are some of the most incredible spectacles of the natural world. Our only issue is that lava is very hot, and isn’t readily available on most movie sets.

That is what has led us to create this brand new bundle of volcano themed VFX assets, all ready to drop into your video. These range from 1080p all the way to 4K, and have been pre-keyed to streamline your editing workflow.

Create an apocalyptic landscape using one of our several magma-bursts, giving the appearance that the ground is breaking up into absolute chaos! You can even check out our fire and ember VFX assets to further add detail into your compositions.

Dust and Smoke VFX Collection

One thing that completes any VFX shot is dust and smoke. They bring a truly gritty atmosphere to any action sequence, and shall forever be a must-have for any serious film producer!

There are two ways you can become a pyrotechnic expert and blast your shot into the next level. The first is to do these effects practically, whether that is setting off fog machines on set, or even using a smoke-grenade. While this may sound like the fun option, it is not always the most practical due to cost, time to set-up, and making sure you operate this equipment safely.

The second option is cheap, quick, easy and only a click away! We have a gigantic collection of dust and smoke VFX assets for your video, all ready to be deployed into your film-production workflow to make your scene look stunning.

So what do we have?

Our bundle includes atmospheric smoke, fog, gigantic plumes, volcanic ash clouds, bursts and dozens of other variations! All of these effects are ready to download, after which you can composite them into your video through software such as After Effects, Hitfilm, Nuke and any other with multi-layer features. We have pre-keyed all of our footage to make it as simple as possible for you to drop them into your composition.

We recommend that you apply a subtle tint effect to your smoke effects so that they match the color of the lighting around them. Another useful tip is to once again tint the overall color to very lightly lean towards the colour of the sky, with a greater tint for further away smoke.
