Video Blocks: 7 Days Of Free Footage Downloads to iPad

Having iMovie on your iPad is great and all, but isn’t it super frustrating when it only allows you to use video that you shot on the iPad? That takes a little of the convenience out of on-the-go editing. However,now you can get the free stock footage clips from VideoBlocks.com.

If you’ve never heard about VideoBlocks, you won’t know they’re offering 7 days of complimentary downloads – and there’s some really decent ones. They are a website offering royalty-free (meaning you don’t have to keep paying to use their footage) stock footage.

What’s setting them apart from most other stock footage sites, is that VideoBlocks offers a 7-day trial subscription — which means 7 days of up to 20 clips free downloads per day, over 115000 clips to download) . VideoBlocks is only giving this complimentary access to a limited number of users. Just create a username and password, and you get download access to everything on VideoBlocks.com for 7 days.

To ensure one login per user, they require a credit card to sign up for an account on VideoBlocks.com. However, you will not be charged anything for your 7 days of complimentary access. After 7 days you will automatically be charged $79 per month if you do not to cancel your account, but they will happily refund you if you forget.

Once you’ve download the VideoBlocks videos, you can easily convert them to iMovie format for your iPad. Basically, you want to end up with an MP4 with the H.264 codec. You can do this using the best iPad video converters we reviewed. Drop your video into the converter, and select output from the iPad preset and start convert. That’s it. Leave the rest alone. After conversion, you can sync them up via iTunes and you should see your video in iMovie on iPad!
