This is one of my best investments. There are some great HD footage on this 2 disk action essentials. Very professional, yet easy for someone like me that's learning more about creating my own video footage. There is so much information & tutorials on this disk, you can't go wrong.... This guy Andrew Kremer ( hope I'm spelling his name correct ) did a great job in putting this together... this team had to take some intensive time into putting this together, this is really unbelievable in creating stock footage like this... my hat goes off for these guys. Just drop these effects on top of your video footage, and you're creating some great professional movies & video's. Footage has great 3D effects on most elements. There is so much on these disks, I can't even mention it all. Copilot video essentials 2, goes far & beyond what many video effects vendors are trying to create. These elements are also pre-keyed so you don't have to work hard on eliminating black background colors to fit into your projects... now that's really being creative and taking out as much work and time for you. Highly recommend this action footage... can't go wrong.

Hands down I love this program and for $99 plus s/h its worth it.

Now if you've been contemplating on getting the 2K Version. I recommend you pay the $249 plus s/h and save money.
I messed up and didn't get the 2k version. I knew instantly after using the program that I should have got the 2k version. -__- now I shall be paying more.

The video is my first attempt at AE (Action Essentials). This video show an example of how cool the program can be AND also at 0:27-0:30 you can see why im buying the 2k version. when editing the video it looked perfect and on point but when rendering the video it came out off and not on point.

learn from my mistake lol >.<

I found detonationfilms.com first and started using their blood effects and explosions. However, they were somewhat lame and unrealistic (not bad, though) and so I searched for better. Somehow, there is hardly anything like this on the internet. Hard to believe. But I did find Action Essentials 2 and got the 99 dollar version. Generally speaking, you won't need the 2K version unless you're rendering to amazing quality stuff. However, if you're making DVD's and internet videos, don't waste all your money on that version.
The program is easy to use, and I store it all on an external hard drive to save space. It's easy to import and key. It works on every program I've used so far- Sony vegas pro 10, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere/After Effects. I think it's designed to work best on After Effects, but if you look online you'll find how to use it on all the other programs, too.
It makes action videos look much better. They can easily be set up to look how you want it to. The only problem is getting it to look perfect, which takes practice. YouTube videos always show the best tutorials.
It comes with blood splatters, explosions, debris, muzzle flashes (the best), and lots others. It does come with a few sound effects, not bad, but I do still just downloda some online. I wish it came with music, though.
It's worth the investment, and maybe you can find it free online. Maybe....

I am a amateur film maker and just began in the world of composting. This pack is well worth every penny and i recommend it to anyone who is a film maker. For $100 you get graphics and special effects, along with a sound pack and tutorials ( only compatible with Adobe After effects). The number of special effects in this pack would take hours to create on your own and would probably not look as professional, they would also probably cost a good chunk of change. So the value of this pack is incredible and is a great starting point for a compositor. I would like to recommend getting it used, you will tend to get it a little cheaper and as long as the seller keeps everything in the box you should get the full package for a few bucks cheaper.

generally pretty good, with the glaring flaw of everything being provided with premultiplied alpha channels, which is a laughably amateur way to do it. What does that mean to you? It means all of your smoke and flames and powder bursts and anything with a light transparent edge will have a dark halo, and while you can fix that with Knoll's free UnMult plug-in, it's still inexcusable.

Bought this for my fifteen year old son, who is a video enthusiast and he loves it. Compared to some much more expensive programs it satisfies his needs and is easy to use.

I gotta say that the genius behind this product created something that I needed, or perhaps what all of us on a low budget or who want to save money and/or time needed. Used this on Final Cut Pro and works like a charm. For the ones who are on the fence, please get it. The 720p version is sufficient for what I do (mainly video streaming, dvd, or bluray) and you'll save yourself some money than using the 2K version. (But I'm not knocking that higher quality version either. If you can get it, by all means do) This collection has got to be the most clever thing out there. So many effects...muzzle flashes, explosions, couch hits, glass shattering, particle hits, blood hits, sparks, bullet holes, etc. The quality is fantastic. Even if you weren't planning to use the other various effects, you eventually will since it'll get your creative juices flowing next time around. I am not a pro, just an intermediate who's been editing since 1990. It does come with a small sample of sound fx (small and large gun shot noises, explosions) but you will still need to find other sound effects somewhere else: nonetheless, it's a special effects package, not a sound fx package. And a wonderful effects package it is! This is well worth the price, worth every penny. You will not be sorry for getting this. I guarantee you that once you get it, you'll be addicted spending more time compositing all this stuff in.
