CreativeCOW presents Stock Video for Professionals -- Adobe Creative Cloud Feature

Stock videos are a great resource for editors of all levels. Adobe Stock gives you access to over 8 million videos (and counting), so whether you’re looking for an inspiring establishing shot or b-roll footage, you can find just the right clip for your project.

Along the way, Adobe Stock takes advantage of unique features such as AI-driven search, workflow integrations, and content partnerships to offer creative professionals exceptionally wide-ranging and easy-to-use options.



The Adobe Stock marketplace offers beautifully shot footage that is safe for commercial purposes. Brand identifiers (signs, logos, etc) have already been removed from the footage saving you the hassle of rotoscoping before dropping into your project. Plus, Adobe Stock is integrated into Premiere Pro CC so you can open clips from the site into your app, or search for clips directly within the app.

The types of videos found in the Adobe Stock collection include:


Aerial Footage
The Aerial footage collection on Adobe Stock features amazing top views that capture a different perspective of the planet we walk on every day. These jaw-dropping shots of perfectly illuminated urban and rural landscapes shot from planes, helicopters and drones really add production value to any project you are working on.

Whether it’s close-up flybys of famous national landmarks, beautiful natural rock formations, picturesque vistas or miracles of nature, urban landscapes, or achievements of civil engineering, all of the aerial footage clips on Adobe Stock are devoid of shaking, noise, or any of the usual defects found in other stock clips of this nature.





Video Loops
Short looping videos are a powerful tool in the hands of a social media marketer or web developer. These light-weight clips can be effective in social media campaigns to grab the audience’s attention and drive traffic to stories. Adobe Stock has a great collection of video loops that add vivid visuals to your campaign. Whether you need to highlight a local restaurant or direct traffic to a travel documentary, there is a video loop that can work for your campaign.


Motion Graphics Templates
Creating a great visual from scratch takes more time compared to creating something from a great template. With Adobe Stock Motion Graphic templates, you will find various overlays, backgrounds, transitional elements, infographics, and social media assets.

These animations cost a fraction of what it would cost to hire a motion designer and are easy to edit yourself, or use exactly as is. For experienced motion graphic designers selling their services to their clients, these assets provide a quick and inexpensive way to get a project approved or as a starting point for your own creativity.




3D Animations
Having readily available high-resolution fully-textured 3D animations is a major time-saver for those who are in need of such assets.. For those editors who don’t have a 3D skillset (and a top of the line computer) and are simply editing on their laptop, incorporating an eye-catching 3D animation into their project is always impressive to a client.



Action Cam Footage
Need to get some “Extreme” footage? Adobe Stock has it in all of its “radical”, “gnarly”, and “extreme” high impact glory. In fact, Adobe recently announced a partnership with GoPro. “We’re excited to make a portion of our vast content library available to Adobe Stock,” says GoPro’s CEO and Founder Nicholas Woodman, “providing some of the world’s most unique perspectives to the incredibly creative Adobe user community.”







Themed Collections
If you don’t know exactly what clip you need, Adobe continually curates collections of clips around specific themes which makes clips easier to browse and can inspire you and your storytelling. The themed collections get frequently renewed and cover topics like Halloween, the Seasons, Contemporary Art, the Olympics, World Pollution, and so on. Anything that is “in the moment” will likely be represented by a curated collection in Adobe Stock.





Editorial and Sports
Change your search filter from Videos to Editorial and discover a whole new group of clips.

Are you producing a segment about last night’s game or recent world event? Choose a clip from Reuters with highlights of that event or sport that’s edited and ready to drop into your sequence or for direct embedding into a story on your website.

Of course, the availability of specific footage depends on the licensing rights, and always check the license to make sure you are using the clip appropriately.






Finding Gems in a Jewelry Store
With so many millions of assets, searching for the right video can be time consuming. This is why Adobe Stock offers powerful video searching features with Adobe Sensei AI technology. By using the filters, you can choose preferred video duration, a suitable frame rate, the inclusion of people or not, and even the prevailing color!

The sorting abilities provide special options including the ability to display unused and previously unseen footage first in the results. Of course, every category of video comes with its own specialized set of filters, so you can comfortably narrow down your results after first selecting a suitable category.





Pro-Grade Stock
The Adobe Stock Video collection offers pro-grade stock clips aimed squarely at the professional market. With its Adobe Sensei AI search engine and its millions of high quality videos in the genres that matter today, it is a logical choice for today’s professionals who have a need to make their work stand out!
