Videomaker Tools. A Mega Toolbox of
500+ Tools & Resources for your Video
Videomaker tools can be anything from video downloaders, ad creators, cutters, trimmers, rotators, background removers, overlays, video skins, marketing tools, presentation tools, annotation tools, animation tools or editors. And there is a whole treasure chest of tools available on the web, that can perform just as well as the super, well known tools that we all see and use everyday on the social media sites.
I was recently searching through my Videomaker tools bookmarks, looking for a video rotator. There are several available, of which you can use for free. It was for a clip taken with a phone camera, in landscape or sideways view. This got me thinking about the staggering amount of tools that are available for videomakers.
So I decided to create this post and break it down into four parts. Many video tools for specific tasks are not that easy to find and hardly ever seen, on social media sites. A tip here is to visit the forums and groups on social media such as our Videomaker Forum. where you’ll find people sharing recommendations, daily updates with tools, tips and more.
I also see on forums and in groups people asking about certain videomaker tools, that can perform certain jobs or tasks all the time. Over the last four or five years I have been collecting and trying to organise my bookmarks into video categories. Even though I now realise it’s an almost impossible task to list the staggering amount of video tools available, it became a challenge. It has been a seemingly never ending task, and now I am going to share some of the best tools I found in this 4 part Videomaker Tools post.
I will also be giving away some DVEYE Original Video Templates with each part, so here is the first giveaway for part 1.
