FAQ – Virtual Studio Set


I'm having trouble importing your demo files into my video editor, what am I doing wrong?

Thank you for your interest in our products and for downloading a demo! Our demo files are contained inside of zip files and must be unzipped or copied from the zip file to another folder. If you simply drag and drop the animation from the zip folder straight into your video editor, the video editor can't find the file because it is technically still compressed. So simply unzip the files first, then import into your video editor of choice to play with your demo files!


What format are your files in?

We have 3 types of files on the site: Adobe After Effects HD Virtual Studios and Motion Graphics Newtek Tricaster Adobe After Effects files are designed to be used in the Adobe After Effects program. All of our templates are compatible with the latest version of After Effects back to the CS3 version of Adobe After Effects. After Effects templates are a great way for advanced users to save time and for beginning and moderate users to learn and create from existing projects. Our HD Virtual sets and Motion Graphics are in MP4 format using H.264 codec and can be used in nearly ANY video editor on the market including Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro / Elements, Sony Vegas, Wirecast and more! Each studio features multiple angles, monitor setups and is designed to save you time and money on your next video production. Our Newtek Tricaster templates are designed to be used with the Tricaster live switching system. These templates allow Tricaster users to create multi camera shoots in real time with programmed animated camera movements and live monitor feeds. We also offer the files in Virtual Set Editor Photoshop format which allows users with Virtual Set Editor even greater freedom to customize and add/remove elements in their scenes! 

Will your files work with my video editor?

That depends on what type of file you are purchasing. If you are purchasing an Adobe After Effects template, you will need the Adobe After Effects software to open and edit the project files. If you are purchasing Tricaster virtual sets, you will need a tricaster and/or virtual set editor to customize your sets. If you are purchasing one of our HD or 4K virtual sets or motions graphics, you can use ANY video editor you like as long as it can import MP4 format files. If you aren't sure, try downloading a demo file in our demo section to test with the video editor of your choice! 

What's the deal with the 30/60 Money Back Guarantee?

We are so certain that our files will save you time and money, that we offer a 30 day money back guarantee on all of our files. Additionally, all BlueFX After Effects templates offer a 60 day money back guarantee! You've got nothing to lose!
