Download the Video Editor Toolkit, a massive collection of free animations, transitions, overlays, and LUTs.
It’s no surprise that we are fans of giving away free assets to help our readers and customers learn how to use new tools, all while making incredible projects. We have a whole section dedicated to free templates and overlays.
220+ Free Animated Assets and Elements
What’s in the Shutterstock Video Editor Toolkit? Let’s check it out.
Available in this Shutterstock freebie are 46 animated icons. You’ll find corporate video assets like printers, computers, and map locations. There are also more general icons like animated arrows, dollar signs, and text bubbles. There are also 34 drag-and-drop shape layers, including animated circle bursts and squares.
Be sure to place your video on two different layers, add a transition to a layer above that and line it up with the end of the first clip and beginning of the second clip. Then just drop a matte, and you’re good to go.
Look Up Tables (LUTs)
52 .CUBE files to use on footage or images. These are compatible with Premiere Pro, DaVinci Resolve, FCPX (with a plugin), as well as Photoshop.
Overlays and Elements
We handed over some of our favorite overlays from RocketStock to include in this toolkit. You may recognize our light leaks, volumetric light, and spark elements.
