Every second of every day, there are 235 searches for the word “free” on Google. Every second. People love free stuff, and “free downloads” tops the chart for one of the most-searched-for terms on the Internet. It’s no surprise that a whole lot of people are searching for free worship video backgrounds, free christian videos, free worship videos, free church video loops, and free-just-about-anything-else-you-can-possibly imagine. Free is wonderful, but do these “free church videos” available online come at a cost?
Warnings about Free Motion Backgrounds
Sharefaith, providing high-quality church videos, is interested in giving churches the best worship videos we can. So, we decided to find out what’s available online. What we discovered was fascinating. The problem with free motion backgrounds and free christian videos is not that they are free. Free motion backgrounds are fine. What does seem to be a problem is that many of these free motion backgrounds and free church videos are of poor quality. In Sharefaith’s survey of free church videos online, we noted several problems:
- Some websites offering free church videos did not actually offer any totally “free church videos.” Any of the alleged “free downloads” came only with a purchase.
- Church media sites with free worship backgrounds featured media of poor quality. It was hard to find any true free worship backgrounds, but the ones we did find had several problems.
- Most of the free motion backgrounds were in low resolution, not suitable for projecting in church.
- Some free motion backgrounds had logo watermarks, distorting the picture and rendering them useless for church worship.
- We discovered that some free motion backgrounds had suitable quality, but the video was of an extremely short duration (10 seconds) which made it nearly impossible to develop anything worthwhile.
- Some free motion backgrounds were only available streaming online, not allowing them to be integrated with church worship software.
- Most of the free motion backgrounds were only available in one file format. This could be extremely frustrating for someone working with software that featured limited file support.
- By far, the worst problem with the lack of artistic and aesthetic quality that these videos displayed.
We don’t have anything against free motion backgrounds. In fact, we’re excited and eager to provide as many free resources to churches as we possibly can. What we do have a problem with is the crummy quality of many free motion backgrounds for churches. Our purpose here is to warn you about the quality of these free motion backgrounds, and to provide a refreshing alternative that is of high quality. Many budget-strapped churches can’t afford to pay for high-quality media, especially at the high rates charged by some worship media companies.
