Last on the listVideezy


Another few sites that are worth mentioning that didn't make my top 5 are : videezy really worth viewing especially if you are looking for 4K. Read the terms however,  they vary.


A "Pay For" But Great Site Videohive


This site is not free in any stretch however the cost for all footage is minamal. Some footage ranges from $8 upwards, and it's totally worth it. Lots of proffesional footage for video , 720p, 1080p , 4K to After Effects, Premiere and Cinema 4D as well as Apple Motion.  If you have a paying project it's worth it. VideoHive
