The collection of portal effects comprises 10 different portals inspired by sci-fi and fantasy movies: all glowing, expanding rings, with a range of transition animations.

Each FX clip is provided in 10-bit ProRes 422 format at 30fps, with alpha mattes, making it easy to composite objects inside. They’re free to download at DCI 2K resolution; or you can buy 4K versions.

The bullet tracer collection comprises 18 bullet trail effects that can be composited into live footage to enhance shootout sequences.

They include a range of bullet trajectories and rates of fire, mimicking automatic and semi-automatic weapons. ActionVFX describes them as suitable for use with both real and sci-fi guns.

All of the files are pre-keyed, and provided in 12-bit ProRes 444 format at 29.97fps. Both the 2K and 4K versions are free to download.

Finally, the camera shake presets comprise 31 After Effects presets mimicking real-world camera shake, from normal hand tremor to the movement of vehicles, impacts and even earthquakes.

Separate presets cover normal, wide-angle and telephoto lenses and camera zoom.

Commercial collections cover all common types of stock effects
ActionVFX also has a range of commercial effects clips available to buy, including fire, explosions, dust, smoke, water, gunshots and blood splatters.
