free motion graphics

02/12/2012

Here’s a great little secret I’ve been using for the past few years. The folks at motionloops.com have a good selection of background graphics to liven up a video. I frequently use their graphics to add some motion to a full screen graphic, or an OTS box. The files are available for direct download, in a variety of formats. They’re not quite where they should be with HD offerings — most files are standard definition. But if you use these files like I do, stretched across the background with about 50% opacity, a bit of a Gaussian blur usually fixes any resolution problems.

Here’s the best part. Motionloops.com has a weekly newsletter you can sign up for. If you’re willing to put up with a weekly email, you’ll find a FREE weekly loop at the bottom of those emails. And the free loops aren’t always awful. I’ve been downloading those free loops each week for years, so I have a decent collection.

Everyone subscribing to the weekly email received a coupon a couple of weeks ago for $40 worth of downloads. Free. Not bad. That kind of stuff has made motionloops.com my go-to site for motion graphics, even though some sites may have better offerings.

The down side? You’ll find Motionloops.com‘s selection limited once used them for a year or two. And their flash-based interface can be clunky.

In any case, it’s hard to beat the free weekly loops.
