Download 45 free explosion SFX from ActionVFX
Stock practical effects site ActionVFX has released two sets of free assets for creating destruction shots.
The first is a set of 45 explosion sound effects, including flames, dirt impacts and shattering glass, provided as 5.1 Surround Sound, 24-bit 48kHz WAV files.
The second is a set of 15 fractured glass textures, which can be used to mimic lens shattering effects, or just to add wear to windows in shots, and which are provided as 2.5K PNG files.
The files complement ActionVFX’s existing free stock footage of smoke plumes and dust waves, which we covered last year. All of the files are licensed for commercial use.
High-quality commercial fire and explosion effects
ActionVFX is intended to provide high-quality stock effects footage tailored to the needs of VFX artists.
Its commercial clips, which include explosions, fireballs, ground fires, and fires on burning structures, are all shot in Log colour space at 60 or 120fps, and are available at 2K or 4K resolution.
The 4K versions also come with the original unkeyed footage as raw .R3D or .MFX files. The effects stay in frame throughout the shots, and the clips are available to purchase individually as well as in collections.
