The Ultimate Resource Centre: [Update 1/31/16]

Recommended Posts

Disclaimer: I do not own any of these websites, or the content that produces them. If you have questions, ask those who are on the website or ask the owner him/herself.

 

ÜberKiller: Judging by the title, this is an area of where you can find a lot of resources for your animations and videos of any kind. You can come here every once in a while to help you find that one sound you really need, or a certain effect you've been looking for. This list will remain free and will not have pirated things. The list will be updated every once in a while so check back every week for new websites added. An update log will be on the bottom for what websites I add. If you want to add any websites, be sure it fills quota:

 

Quota:

 

 

Spoiler

- The resource must be free. Pirated links will not count.

- Policies do not involve licenses or external payments.

- Links must be from an actual website. Nothing from Dropbox/Mediafire etc. will work.

- Content is within the rules of the forum

 

 

This quota is subject to change and can change due to any event in the past or future.

 

These are ordered by what you may need, so sift in the correct category. Links marked in green mean the resource can be used freely. Links in red mean you will have to provide credit for use of the sounds. Links in orange mean some require credit and some do not.

 

In the rigs section, there are multiple rigs for various uses. However, there are no duplicate rigs added. (Seriously, we have hundreds of Steve rigs.) Truckload of thanks to Ayhay for making the whole rig spreadsheet. His work will not go un-noticed as it is currently bigger than most links we have here. I will add to it and update it when I get a free chance.

 

 

Current List of Rigs as of August 13th

 

Stock Video: 

 

Vegasuar Free Page - Great quality effects/footage/templates for videos. Very narrow selection however.

 

Video Effects:

 

Detonation Films - Not everything is free, the link is to their free stuff list so you may search yourself. Contains mid-grade generic explosion and fire effects.

Footage Crate - Contains a very broad area of things. It's mainly video effects, but it also has free sound effects and graphics too.

 

Music/Score:

Liquid Cinema - Seems these guys played naughty and don't have links. You can use it as a stepping stone, but remember, piracy is illegal.

Incompetech - A vast library of score and music as far as the eyes see. Even the most popular of youtubers come here for music.

TeknoAxe - A good selection of Techno and Metal score with some orchestral music included.

The Secession Studios - A stellar quality of trailer score and movie score. A license is available for purchase, otherwise you just need to provide credit.

Free Stock Music - An amazing selection of different and wide variety of film score to use. You will need to create an account though, but it's all well and good.

mobygratis - The website functions in an odd manner, but you have to send for an application to use the music. Then in 24 hours you will be given the greenlight, or you will not be permitted to use the sounds. However the score selection is nearly endless so it is worth the reward.

CC Archive - A list of hand-picked websites to get music under a creative commons license. This is where to get music, not score. Though this is a great stepping stone to find some good music.

 

Sound Effects:

 

Flash Kit - Contains generic effects for use in videos. Not everything is high quality, so at your own risk.

Free Sound - Sound Effects made by users on the website. You will need to register a profile to use the website, but it's well worth it.

Sound Bible - A whole website dumped with sound effects. Lots to choose from. The sources are rather questionable though, so be careful.

Blink Farm - A bunch of high quality gun sound effects.

Sound FX Center - Great - High quality sound effects for various uses. They even have video game sound effects. (the good ones!)

Sweet Sound Effects - Free to use and good quality sound effects for a variety of uses.

Media College - Released under creative commons, and most sound effects are pretty good for an Indie company.

Sound Jay - Very good sound effects from this website, and most, if not all, are free. Lacks searching though.

Sound Snap - The sounds on here can range from great to decent, so that's a good placement. Ordered in categories.

FreeSFX - Great sound effects. High quality. But they limit your downloads. (Only 3 downloads per 3 mins)

Findsounds - Basically a search engine for sounds. The quality is questionable, and some sounds aren't royalty free. Be sure to check the links provided.

Sound Jax - Same as Findsounds, but with a bigger selection of sounds. Although they are citated.

Terkoiz's Gift - A 160 mb bundle of sound effects from youtuber Terkoiz. The video description also includes a few other things..

Pepper's Old Sounds - This was released to Hyun's Dojo several years ago. They belong to the sound effect artist Dan Pepper. Free to use but do credit him if you would. That'd be nice.

 

All:

Cute Stock Footage - Contains a great selection of pretty much everything you'll need. There are some really great Royalty Free content here; you just need to wade through the other stuff first.

Give Me Free Art - Fantastic selection of stock footage, art, backgrounds etc. Pretty much fine stuff for those looking for some stock video and other things.

Youtube Audio Library - A search engine of sounds effects and music that's free to download. Can be sorted by it's filters for finer searching.

 

D.I.Y. :

 

 

Spoiler

PSD Tuts Plus - A wide array of Photoshop tutorials that can help you in the long run. Good for making textures and certain effects you need.

303 Sony Vegas Tutorials - Massive amount of practical tutorials for film makers. Highly recommended for Sony Vegas (Obviously.)

Vimeo Video School - Good selection of tutorials for those who are new to making videos.

 

Sub Section - Plug-ins:

Audacity Plug-in page - Would only use these if using unknown sound files for Audacity.

 

Sub Section - Software:

Wax - Ideal for creating basic video effects. Not recommended for beginners.

Audacity - One of the best (and free) softwares for editing sounds. I would download the LAMEMp3 plug-in for this program, as it cannot open MP3's without it!

Blender - 3D Modeling Software. Useful for creating effects in videos as well as new environments.

3DS Max (3 year student trial) - Best 3D Modeling software available. Very flexible, yet very advanced.

I had created a similar topic as an idea to ask what people think. After posting it I discovered this. So my bad...

Having a look through, it's a great but I feel it's missing a few things. As I had posted in my topic:

    Schematics

    Map Schematics (More detail includes map size: small, medium, big)
    Scenery Schematics (More detail includes grouping: nature prop, I'm a bit brain dead here for more types)
    Item Schematics (More detail includes grouping: Weapons, General items, still brain dead :()
    Probably a lot more types (Suggest some)
    Tutorials on making them

    Rigs

    Animals
    Human (Steve etc.) related
    Mobs
    Vehicles
    Probably a lot more types (Suggest some)
    Tutorials on making them

    Visual/Auditory Effects

    A soundboard for Minecraft. I found a topic recently.
    A collection of sounds for TF2/Minecraft animations.
    Other Misc sounds for specific items
    I'm a bit brain dead on something for Visual effects... D:
    Probably a lot more types (Suggest some)
    Tutorials for sound (more common sense I believe) on making them (meaning getting them from somewhere. EG. I used sounds from Naruto episodes in one of my animations).

The bullet points seem to be missing but I hope you get it. I was hoping you'd be able to edit some of that in? I also think it's a pretty big task searching through all the resources to organize like that so, if you need help I can help.

If you feel fit, you can send me a bunch of links via PM. I would add those into an accorded section for the list.

I'll try my best. now. Let me just check the number of pages... faint and then get on with it :)

EDIT:

Well not that many as I expected :D

Now I'm going to sort it later in the day.

Aha it's there :)

 

It's not just rigs, the spreadsheet has the tabs below to Scenery, Skins and something else too I believe :D (I made it and can't remember x_x)

 

The link seems to be failing for me. But I am able to download, anyone else getting problems?

 

I'll also update the sheet with my copy at the end of the month Killer, a monthly thing I'd say.

Add this too Killer :)

TF2 Sound board:

http://www.tf2sounds.com/

Minecraft sound board (From PMC JUST CONTAINS MOB SOUNDS) by Zakoschris

PMC Link

Direct download link

You could just open the .vpk files using GCFscape in the directory: 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Team Fortress 2\tf

 

I'll add it since it seems easier to other members who don't have steam.

EDIT: The MC sounds is just a soundboard. No good for this topic.

EDIT 2: I cannot add either sounds for this thread. The thread HAS to be downloadable files usable for video editing software.

Hi, I just made a new youtube channel and to show that my previous channel is no longer here I'm "retiring" my old skin by burring him at a funeral with my friends crying as I go down into the ground in a coffin. There is only one problem I need a good schematic for the open grave and graveyard where the funeral will take place! Please help and make this schematic

This isn't a request topic. There's a section for that. Try making a topic there. There are also many maps made already, try googling it.

I dont get it, why is this in requests

There isn't any other place that would make sense. "Requests" seemed to make the most since as any other place would seem unrelated to the area. And since this is for video content, people would often look here if they needed anything.

This will come in RIDICULOUSLY handy, great work!

I concur. Too bad it gets missed very often.

It's actually been helping with my recovery of sounds since I lost everything in my computer recovery.
