Adobe Stock rolls out a huge pile of 100,000 4K video stock clips

Adobe has now unveiled over 100,000 4K video assets to their subscription and per-clip services known as Adobe Stock. The 4K footage isn’t quite yet available but it will be a part of over 1 million pieces of video and some 45 million images and graphics which users of the service can search, browse, purchase and use from inside the Creative Cloud versions of the company’s and services content creation software packages.

These packages include Premiere Pro CC and After Effects CC. Individual 4K clips are also available with a standard license for about $199.99 each.

Adobe originally launched their stock footage service as a sort of photos-only library in June of 2015, shortly after they acquired microstock image giant Fotolia. Stock search in the Adobe system at the time integrated cleanly with Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign and also more indirectly into Premiere Pro and After Effects library search systems from Adobe.

Furthermore, Adobe added in HD video after that for $79.99 per clip and with integration into its network of CC products, in October of 2015.

As for the 4K videos, According to Adobe, “4K is increasingly becoming the new standard for video production and demand for higher resolution content, sometimes referred to as UHD, is growing quickly.” In other words, 4K video gives users of Adobe editing products in the CC family more options for post-production flexibility and a greater degree of video manipulation capacity thanks in part to the extra pixels of 4K video.

We should also note that all of the Adobe 4K stock video assets are in native 4K resolution, meaning that they were either directly recorded in 4K with a camera that works in the resolution or they were rendered in 4K resolution in the case of computer-generated media clips.

Potential users of Adobe’s new 4K video assets can also find more information on the company’s website, here.

Adobe has also uploaded five of their 4K video assets to their Adobe Creative Cloud YouTube channel, you can see two of these right below:
