FAQ

Here are our frequently asked questions:

  • How many video clips are included in each pac?
  • Each pac varies, but typically there are between 3-19 different clips in each pac. Check the pac details for exact amount.
  • How are the digital video files delivered to me?
  • After you purchase a pac, you’ll immediately be given access to download links for each clip on the Pac page.
  • What format and encoding are the video files?
  • All FILMPAC video clips are 4k (3840×2160) resolution with a framerate of 23.976 fps, or 24p, delivered in ProRes 422.
  • How is FILMPAC different than other stock footage websites?
  • Everything is 4K, ProRes. We offer themed Pacs instead of individual clips. Our empowering membership option gives you access to everything. More curation, less clutter, consistent quality – see more on our About page.
  • Can I preview the footage prior to making a purchase?
  • Yes, on each Pac page, just hover over any clip and hit the download sample button. This allows you to download a 4K watermarked preview.
  • Are Standard Pacs “Royalty Free”?
  • Yes, Royalty free means you pay to license the footage once upfront, without the need to pan any additional or ongoing fees. See the license details page if you have any usage questions.
  • Do I need to credit FILMPAC in my video?
  • No, it’s not mandatory to give us credit. If you want to, great, but not necessary.
  • Are there any restrictions on how I can use stock footage with people/models?
  • Yes and no. Even though all of our footage has model release forms on file, footage with images of people can’t be used in a way that implies the model is personally endorsing something. They also cannot be used for sensitive subjects. Sensitive subjects are those that could be offensive or highly unflattering to the model or put them in a bad light (this is a grey area which requires judgment), such as medical and health issues, sexual activity, pornography (adult content), substance abuse, tobacco use, or immoral or illegal activity. This is not an exhaustive list so if you’re not sure, contact info@filmpac.com.
  • FILMPAC bundles are non-exclusive…what does non-exclusive mean?
  • Non-exclusive means that you are not the only person with access to the footage within the bundle. Others customers could also be licensing and using the same item. It’s a big world, there’s enough FILMPAC footage to go around.
  • I’m not sure if my use of my licensed footage is covered under your normal license. What should I do?
  • Contact us at info@filmpac.com.
  • Can I re-distribute an item?
  • No. You can’t license a FILMPAC pac and then make it available to others ‘as-is’ (that is, as a stand-alone item or as stock). The purpose of the footage within the pac is to be used by you for your own work, or client work in a broader scope…not to be re-distributed and sold. Your videos must be intended for unique projects (i.e. you cannot create a single video that you are selling as a template to multiple clients).
  • Can multiple people within my company have access to the item?
  • No. Every standard license purchase is a single-user license. The FILMPAC UNLIMITED Team subscription and Extended licenses allows for multiple editors.
  • Can I store the item on an intranet so everyone has access?
  • No, items must be stored in a location where only the purchaser has access.
  • Is my license transferable?
  • Generally, your license is not transferable.
  • Are some clips included in multiple pacs?
  • No. Every clip is only included in one pac. There may be similar shots from the same model, but never the same shot twice. Never repeated.
  • How can I become a contributor to FILMPAC?
  • At this point in time, we aren’t accepting new contributors. However, we may open to outside contributors for future collections, so subscribe to our email to stay up to date.
