How to Use The Action Hits Toolkit of 70+ Action Compositing Elements

Action Hits Toolkit: 70+ Free Action Compositing Elements — How to Use This Kit

We created this pack of 70+ action compositing elements with experimentation in mind. There are many different ways you can use these elements, from compositing your action scenes to adding some really nice texture and excitement to motion graphics.

Almost all of these elements will find their best use in Adobe After Effects; however, they will work in any major nonlinear editing software.

Action Hits Toolkit: 70+ Free Action Compositing Elements — Blending Modes

We shot these elements against a black background; this way all you need is the appropriate blending mode to include them in your own project. The best blending modes to use will be “Add,” “Linear Dodge” (add), or “Screen.” However, you may be able to get interesting results using other blend modes. Again, experiment!

Action Hits Toolkit: 70+ Free Action Compositing Elements — Experimentation

My personal favorite part of this pack is the “Magic Sci/Fi toolkit.” This aspect of the Action Hits Toolkit is purely for experimentation and creating cool effects and looks that you might have never thought of before.

With some spark circles inspired by Doctor Strange, interesting orbs created with a lens ball, and some colorful magical spark/spell hits, you can mix these elements to create fantasy effects, sci-fi effects, or anything in between.

100% Practical Effects

Action Hits Toolkit: 70+ Free Action Compositing Elements — Practical Effects

We shot these elements and effects practically in 4K in our studio using quite a few different techniques and methods.
