More Texture Options and Alternatives
Texture templates made specifically for video are great, but they're not the only way to integrate texture into your film. Here are three alternatives you might want to try from Envato Elements, where you can download as much as you like for a monthly subscription.
1. Stock Images
Although they won't have alpha channel, stock photographs can be really useful for adding in texture, just lower the opacity to bring your background footage and the texture to a happy balance. There are textures for just about anything, and you might even want to try making your own. Here's a good example of a photograph that would work well:
2. Stock Video
Very much like stock photography but with its own movement, stock video can complement your own footage really nicely. Again there's generally no alpha channel, but with some blending you can create something great and there's often a more varied selection with stock video texture than with video texture templates.
Sometimes you can do a sort of sidestep into finding something useful. While you might not necessarily be looking for a full template—like a slideshow for example—but they can come with elements like texture layers that you might be able to make use of.
