has released the Origin Digital Video Series. The series features 40 new royalty-free video titles that can be purchased online.
Bestshot.com describes the Origin Series as a set of video design elements developed to be incorporated into any multimedia projects. Vidbits, for example (a subset of the Origin Series) includes mattes to make compositing easy.
All of the video clips in the Origin Series are provided in D1-NTSC resolution — that’s 720 x 486 resolution, at 30 frames per second — which means that they’re broadcast quality clips. Clips are also scaled to 320×240 pixels at 15 fps, making them suitable for multimedia applications, such as CD-ROM, Flash, and Web sites.
Each Origin Series CD contains movies encoded in QuickTime. Individual clips from the CDs can be previewed and purchased online, as well.
Bestshot.com president John C. Davis recently advised MacCentral that all CDs are available for a limited time for US$99, as well — they’re regularly $399 to $799.
