My VJ software is not loading my HAP or DXV encoded visuals, how can I fix this?
You most likely do not have the proper codec installed or it could be outdated. A video codec is required for you to be able to view the files you’ve downloaded in not only your preferred VJ software, but in any media player on your operating system. Below are the links to the download required codecs.

→ HAP Codec Download


What resolution should I download?
Our files are prepared using the software developer’s recommended formats. However, performance may vary depending on your computer hardware. If you are using a recent (2015-2017) high end laptop or desktop with a capable GPU, 1080p should be fine. If you have older hardware, we suggest downloading 720p versions or converting files to a format and resolution suitable for your hardware by choosing the 1080p Photo JPEG option.

Hard drive speed is also a factor that can increase performance, especially for 1080p clips. We have found that streaming clips from an SSD drive produces great results. Unless your external hard drive is extremely fast, it is recommended to playback clips from an internal drive.

To test what might work best for your hardware, download and experiment with one of our Freebies.

What is the best codec to use for my visuals/VJ software?
For Resolume you will get the best performance using the DXV codec. For GrandVJ, VDMX, MixEmergency, Modul8, and CoGe we recommend using the HAP codec. This is because the above mentioned software have built-in codec support that takes advantage of GPU acceleration meaning better performance and less stress on the CPU. If hard drive space is an issue, H.264 files are the smallest but also require extra computing power. If you plan to edit content with post-production software we recommend the Photo JPEG encoded files.

What if I need resolutions smaller than 720p?
We recommend downloading Photo JPEG versions if you need smaller sizes. These are the highest quality versions we provide, and are perfect for converting to formats and resolutions of your choice.


Do you support live visual performance software other than the ones listed?
Yes, which is why we’ve created 1080p Photo JPEG versions of all our visuals. Download that format to use in whatever software you own or use it to convert to whatever format you need.


Are your clips royalty free?
Yup! 100% royalty free. Once you purchase clips, they’re yours to do what you want. However, they are not for resale in any way, even with modification.
