We are creatives who believe in something better. We started THAT Studio because we -- like so many others --
believe good content comes from creatives, not just from "the system".
Since our inception in 2013, we have experimented with film (Hero Punk), television (String Theory), visual effects and products (like THAT Studio Effects, Conform Studio and more). During this process, we've learned a lot and we intend to use that knowledge to create better content on a reasonable budget.
We decided to go back to doing what we love most, creating & producing original content.
We built THAT Studio Effects
because we needed high-quality original Quicktime footage. We loved it so much, we thought you'd love it too.
If you are looking for a replacement, try Adobe Stock Footage, which contains millions of stock videos.
If you purchased THAT Studio Effects, thank you for coming along for the ride. We will continue to maintain our Cloud-based infrastructure, so you can continue to access THAT Studio Effects.
If you really want the Adobe CC Addon (THAT Studio Effects Panel), it can be downloaded directly from Adobe at Adobe's Add-ons Area directly from Adobe. Until sometime in 2016, you can still purchase and download all content in THAT Studio Effects.
You will never lose your license. Once you purchase THAT Studio Effects, you have a royalty-free license to this content. Your content will be available to you online as a download or in your library, once you've downloaded the files. When we eventually decide to retire THAT Studio Effects, we e-mail you and let you know with plenty of time to download everything.
