So how do you use all of these free elements? This quick tutorial offers a rundown of some of the many ways you can add these assets to your project.

Adobe Premiere Pro CC

The Video Editor Toolkit is compatible with Adobe Premiere Pro CC. Be sure to check out the Shutterstock Plugin for Premiere Pro to speed up your editing workflow.

Animations

Drag-and-drop the animations into your timeline. That’s it! The prepackaged animations are ready to use.

Transitions

As we see in the video above, place your video clips on two different layers (V1 and V2 in the example). Then add the transition to the layer above the clips (V3). Line up the transition with the end of the first clip and the beginning of the second clip.

Add a Track Matte Key to the clip on V2. Direct the matte to Video 3, and adjust the composite to Luma Alpha. Use the razor blade to cut the V2 clip at the end of the transition. Remove the Track Matte Key from the clip that continues to play after the transition.

Overlays

Drag-and-drop the overlays onto the layer above your clip. Open the Effects Controls on the overlay, and under Opacity, change the Blend Mode to Screen.

LUTs

Open the Color panel in Premiere Pro. Select your clip in the timeline. Under Basic Correction, navigate to the Input LUT dropdown menu. Hit Browse… and navigate to the Video Editor Toolkit LUTs folder. Select the LUT of your choice.


Final Cut Pro X

The Video Editor Toolkit is compatible with Final Cut Pro X. Although we don’t feature this NLE in the video, the same rules still apply, but the steps are slightly different.

Animations

Drag-and-drop the animations into your timeline. That’s it! The prepackaged animations are ready to use.

Transitions

Place two clips into your timeline. Add the transition above the first clip, and align with the end of the clip. Click on the transition and open the Inspector. Navigate to the Compositing section. Change the Blend Mode to Silhouette Alpha.

Now in the timeline, select the first clip and the transition together, right-click, and select New Compound Clip. Click OK.

Move the playhead to the beginning of the transition. Place your second clip underneath the first clip.

Overlays

Drag-and-drop the overlays onto the layer above your clip. Open the Inspector with the overlay selected, and under Compositing, change the Blend Mode to Screen.

LUTs

To use LUTs in Final Cut Pro X, you will first need to download a LUT plugin. For a great free plugin, consider mLUT from Motion VFX. Use the plugin of your choice to apply the LUTs to your footage.
