I'm a freelance videographer who was initially thrilled to see that Adobe Stock offered stock footage for editors to license and use video reels and such. The stock footage is pretty high quality good but the price is definitely too outrageous for a lowly freelancer like me. I downloaded what appeared to be about 45mins. of stock footage for $79.99 but what I actually got was an .08 sec video which was 1 of 8-10 videos in the entire collection. Based on the site's language I assumed I would receive all videos in the collection for the price of $79.99 price. When I called adobe to say I only received one clip from the collection they informed me that the actual price of the .08 sec clip I downloaded was in fact $79.99 and that each video in the series is priced separately at the same price of $79.99. None of the videos in this collection or others I was told are longer than .30 seconds. Someone just starting out hoping to create a video reel (i.e me) could easily spend $800-$1000 obtaining sufficient footage from Adobe Stock. Language regarding pricing/purchasing for stock video footage on A/S is very ambiguous to say the least. Although the video footage on A/S is definitely top-notch the pricing/value aspect of this A/S offering is extremely disproportionate.
