The general rule is that you can use anything that you created and/or own the rights to. In most cases, that will exclude things you find on Google Images. And movies.

You may be able to find images and or footage with a creative commons licence that means you can include the images in your preview (sometimes with attribution), but most likely can’t give them away in the project file.

Envato do provide a selection of sample imagery that you can use in your previews though. Best to stick with those or buy licenses for stock images/footage to use in your previews. You should find more info in the help pages.

*EDIT…or follow the links from MassFocus!
