FAQs

How do I install the FX packs?

There is no installation needed for any of the packs. You import them into your editing program like regular footage and overlay them over your edits. Please reference our tutorials for more details. https://cinepacks.store/pages/tutorials   

 

Where are my download links?

Download links will be emailed to you in a separate email - sometimes in multiple emails. Please be patient as the links may take up to 10-20 minutes to be sent out. Make sure you entered the correct email and also check your spam folder. If you still haven't received anything after a few hours, you can contact us at customer support.

Please know that payments through electronic checks (e-checks) may take up to a week to process and those orders won't receive the download links until after the payment clears on our end. We recommend paying through PayPal or credit card for the fastest delivery.

 

I'm having issues downloading the packs. How do I keep my downloads from timing out?

Unfortunately some of our packs are extremely large files, we did our best to split them up into manageable download sizes - but you still need a good internet connection to download them. We recommend downloading each file one at a time to ensure the least amount of issues.

        Download Troubleshooting

  • Run an internet speed test to make sure your internet is working correctly 
  • Try a different source of internet (Coffee shop, Local Library, Friends house)
  • Hardwire your computer to the router using an ethernet cable for a stronger connection
  • Make sure you have enough hard drive space
  • Only Download each pack one at a time. 
  • Try a different internet browser, like Google Chrome, Firefox, etc.
  • Make sure no one else is using the internet during the download process

 

How do I access the files?

After you download the files, you will need to unzip them. On Mac, you can just double click to unzip and on Windows you can right-click to select Extract All, and then follow the instructions. If your PC doesn't already have an unzipping program, you will need to download something like https://www.7-zip.org/

 

Do these packs work in ____?

Yes all of our packs work in Premiere Pro, After Effects, Final Cut Pro, DaVinci Resolve, Sony Vegas and most other editing programs. Most of our packs are video files that you can just overlay over your edits. Some may need you to adjust the blending mode to "screen" or "add"

The Paper & Money FX packs for Sony Vegas may include an extra step of keying out the green to get the transparent layer. 

 

Can I use your free effects in paid videos? Commercial videos? Monetized youtube videos?

Yes you can use any of our effects (the free ones as well as the full packs) for ANY project. There are no restrictions for usage rights. 

The only restrictions are that you CANNOT sell, rent, lease, distribute, trade, host, or otherwise exploit our products in any commercial or non-commercial manner. Please keep our effects off of torrent sites, don't send them to your friends, and don't modify or recreate our effects and sell them as your own. 

 

How do I install the LUTS?

Premiere Pro:

Once you have your project open, navigate to the Color Tab and look for Basic Correction. You’ll see a button titled ‘Input LUT’ with the clickable word ‘None’ next to it. Click this button and then click Browse. Navigate to the 'CinePacks LUTS' folder and choose the '.cube' file you want to use. Adjust the settings to your liking.

You can also pre-load the LUTS into your directories so you don't have to look for the LUTs folder each time.

Mac Users (drag the LUTs into these folders)

/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/LUTs/Creative

/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/LUTs/Technical

Windows Users (drag the LUTs into these folders)

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\LUTs\Creative

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\LUTs\Technical

 

Final Cut Pro X:

Once you have your project open, navigate to the right side of your screen and click the two overlaid boxes icon to show the Effects Browser. Once in that browser, click ‘Color’ in the left tab, on the right tab click and select ‘Custom LUT’ and drag it over to apply on your clip.

Next, you need to make sure the Inspector is showing. You can show/hide the inspector by clicking the button in the top right of the screenshot below with the three lines and sliders on it.

In the Inspector, you’ll see the Custom LUT effect applied to your clip. Click the drop-down bar next to LUT and select ‘Choose Custom LUT…’. Navigate to the 'CinePacks LUTS' folder and choose the '.cube' file you want to use. Adjust the settings to your liking.

You can also import the entire folder of LUTs.

 

DaVinci Resolve:

Pre-load the LUTs into the Resolve LUTs tab by copy and pasting the 'CinePacks LUTs' folder into the following destinations.

Mac
Macintosh HD / Library / Application Support / Blackmagic Design / DaVinci Resolve / LUT

Windows
C: / Program Data / Blackmagic Design / DaVinci Resolve / Support / LUT

To find and apply the LUTs, you need to switch to the Color Tab on the bottom of the screen. Then once you're there, click the LUTS tab on the top left and find the CinePacks LUTs folder. Double click the LUT you want to apply in the LUTs preview screen and it will automatically apply to the clip/node you have selected.
