Tips for combining stock footage with your own videos

  • Choose the stock footage that matches your assets.

    When choosing stock footage, try to pick videos that match your own assets in terms of quality, color scheme, style, brightness, and sharpness. This way, stock footage and your assets will complement each other and look more natural as a whole.
  • Apply a color overlay.

    One of the easiest ways to tie stock footage and your own videos into one branded story is to apply a color overlay or filter. Make sure it matches your brand colors and the overall mood of the video.
  • Search for relevant stock footage.

    When looking for stock footage online, try making your search phrase as exact as possible. Also, use filters to tweak the search to exactly match your needs. You might get much fewer results, but they will be highly relevant.
  • Make the stock footage look unique.

    Make stock footage look unique by adding text, stickers, GIFs, and other visual elements that will help to highlight your brand. This way, stock assets won't look too stocky when combined with your footage.
  • Add smooth transitions.

    To make your video look seamless, add smooth transitions and other visual effects between scenes with stock footage and your assets.
