For a recent project I have been working on I needed to include videos in it. I found lots of great stock video at iStock Photo. Their selection is fairly extensive, high quality, and reasonably priced. Once you find a video you want to use you can click on it and download a comp. If you are like me you need to work with this comp to create your comp lest you spend tons of money buying videos that don’t end up making the final version. The problem is the iStockPhoto video comps are FLV flash file formats that don’t work in video editing programs.

I found a program called “FLV to AVI MPEG WMV 3GP MP4 iPod Converter” from AONE Software that works great to take those FLV iStock Video comps from the flash video format to multiple other more usable formats such as MPEG, WMV, AVI. Once you have your video comp in a usable format you can place them into your project.

Check out my follow-up post to see how to work with the iStockPhoto Video Alpha Channels and Chroma Keys.
