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.

That’s why this new pack caught our attention. Our friends over at Shutterstock have packaged up over 220 free video elements and assets in their Video Editor Toolkit.

220+ Free Animated Assets and Elements

What’s in the Shutterstock Video Editor Toolkit? Let’s check it out.

Motion Graphics

Over 220 Free Assets for Video Editors and Motion Designers — Motion Graphics

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.

Transitions

Over 220 Free Assets for Video Editors and Motion Designers — Transitions

There are nine circle transitions in the toolkit. If you like the way these work, you can also check out our transition packs, Stanza and Prism.

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)
