Compatibility

Use this compatibility guide to determine software compatibility with our virtual sets and studio backgrounds, motion backgrounds, and Adobe After Effect Templates.

What is Photo-JPEG Compression?

This compression format is used by many of the top online stock companies because it is nearly universally compatible with most non-linear editing applications and it has an excellent compression to size ratio.

Photo-JPEG is supported by Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere, Adobe Premiere Elements, Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Express, Sony Vegas, Wirecast and any other chroma key enabled video editor.


What format are the videos in?

Unless otherwise noted , videos are in quicktime format using Photo- JPEG compression. This compression format is used by many of the top online stock companies because it is nearly universally compatible with most non-linear editing applications and it has an excellent compression to size ratio.

After Effects templates are in .AEP format and can only be opened with a full version of After Effects. The version of After Effects needed is in the description of the file since this will vary from file to file.


What software is compatible with your files?

Our backgrounds are compatible with any video editing software that has the ability to import quicktime animation files and can perform chroma key removals. Our backgrounds are known to work with Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere, Adobe Premiere Elements, Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Express, Sony Vegas, Wirecast and any other chroma key enabled video editor. We have also had clients who have used iMovie and Windows Movie Maker, but this is generally a little more difficult to setup because these editors are designed to be as simple as possible.


I need a file converted to something I can use, can you do that?

We would be happy to convert any file to whatever format you need (as long as we have the ability to compress using the format you need) for a small fee. Also, if you need a file with the monitor green screens removed and would prefer an alpha version, just let us know. We generally don’t offer these as downloads because the file sizes associated with pre-alpha footage is prohibitive.
