The second edition of my resource guide for video editors and graphic designers is now available. Here is what it is and how to get it.

My guide is an extensive round up of the best free and low cost resources for the video editor and graphic artist. I’ve scoured the internet, clicked on links, checked on services and downloaded files. It’s taken over a year, but now the guide is ready to be released. And the best part is, I’m sharing it for FREE.

What’s in this guide?

Great tools, resources and services that will help us make our videos and graphics better. In my search I went looking for resources that were free or low cost AND could be used in commercial projects.The guide is divided into these sections:
– After Effects Templates
–  Animations/Motion Backgrounds
– Fonts
– Stock Music
– Stock Photos
– Photoshop
– Brushes
– Patterns
– Gradients and Patterns
– Actions
PSD files
FCP X Plug Ins
– Premiere Pro Plug Ins
– Sound Effects
– Textures
– Vectors
– Stock Video
– Other Cool Stuff.

The Other Cool Stuff section covers these topics:
– Colors; Color, swatches and themes
– Maps
– Infographics
– Generators; Stripes, backgrounds, signs and more
– PDF Tools; Tools to convert, edit, merge and compress PDF files
– Logos
– Web Clipping Tools
– Screen Recording
– Photoshop Alternatives
– Other Cool Stuff; Lots of other great stiff that doesn’t fit into any of the other categories

And that’s what’s in the guide.  A total of 223 pages and over 1,000 links to free and low cost resources for the video editor, Photoshop user and graphics creator.  You read that last correctly- OVER 1,000 LINKS.

And just to round it all out. This guide has over 200 color pictures to help guide you in your search for great resources.
