Post Holes Intros Three New Additions To Stock Video LibraryPre-matted HD/SD clips give more flexibility to editors & graphic artists (April 06, 2005)
Post Holes introduces three new additions to its library of pre-matted stock video clips. These new collections offer increased flexibility and are available in HD, SD, and PAL. Post Holes offers royalty-free, stock footage clips that are pre-matted in a ready-to-use format, designed for compositing and editing applications that support alpha-channel media. Collections include full-motion clips originated on high definition video and converted to keyable QuickTime clips ready for compositing.
According to Rob Powell, General Manager of Post Holes, the new collections expand the functionality and usefulness of the existing library. "Post Holes clips provide editors and graphic artists with stock media designed specifically for compositing. When you're building a graphics composition, you don't want full-frame images. You need pre-matted elements that act as a discrete layer. Post Holes clips enable artists to apply plug-ins and effects that you could never use with a full-frame image. Our new HD versions provide even more benefits to those working in SD compositions. Using the HD clips in an SD composition gives users the ability to scale the image to the size they need. Obviously, there are limits based on the framing of the original image, but this gives the end-user tremendous flexibility to make their own decisions about the shot framing they need. This kind of functionality is only possible because of the pre-matted nature of our footage. This is a totally unique product in the industry."
Post Holes is introducing three new collections at the NAB 2005 convention in Las Vegas, April 18-21.
