    I've decided to write a thread on this topic after I've received a good response from my post on "How Difficult Is Making A Video Similar To This....?" thread by CEPI.

    I'll walk you through the resources where you can buy stuff and the software you need to get started.

    First of all you need 'Adobe After Effects'. I am not a pro at it either, but it took only a day or two to figure out working with the basic features.

    Install Adobe after effects. Any version after CS 4 is fine.

    Check Videohive.net, it is a partner network of Envato (Same company that owned ThemeForest).

    I am so obsessed with this site, for it has awesome videos for a cheap price. Find templates that exactly suit your purpose. Usually they are around 15$ ~ 25$ prices and majority of them will come with a video tutorial on how to edit the template. #PrettySimple

    I've made around 3-4 video so far which costed me no more than 40$ for any of the video. I must say the quality of templates I find at this place are fucking awesome. If you are lazy you can talk to the creator of the template and I am sure they can make a video for a cheap price.

    Usually these template that they sell doesn't come with an audio and that costs me an extra 10$ ~ 15$. Every template will have a link where we can buy the audio from(AudioJungle, another partner site).

    Thats it, you can make a kick ass video for less than 40$ (25$ for template+15$ for audio) and at most 3~5 hours of time(for a newbie).

    I know people might be hesitant to believe what I say and everyone on BHW asks for 'SHOW ME the PROOF' ;)

    I've made a quick video for BHW. It took me less than 2 hours to edit the template and 3 hours to render the video(when I'm snoring asleep ;) ). Again I'm not a pro at After Effects and I've started using it just 2 weeks back and its fucking awesome. These template sellers make it really easy to edit em, Majority of the time its just edit it text, render BAM.

    Just give it a try and I'm sure you will love it :D. Once you are used to it you can also sell em on Fiverr for 2 gigs or so. I'm sure people will love to buy quality videos and they never knew how easy it is to make em ;)





    SEO Benefits

    I usually make videos like these and distribute em over a ton of video sites( I use services like OneLoad or Fiver Gigs). Collect the links and embed em to level 1 links(Web 2.0 etc..).


    Hahah.. For some reason I love highlighting in RED and BOLD ;)



    [UPDATE]

    Credits to dbyrn. You can download audio tracks cheap for 0.99$ from JewlBeat.

    Brilliant, thanks for this. I've used AAE ages ago, it was (really) simple soft with amazing results, but I didn't know about these templates! Time to start my YT advertising as well :)

    Congrats, you just put a lot of video services out of business :) A lot of companies re-sell these templates at 20 to 30 times the price (with mods included).

    Since I'm a true warez-heart guy, I've been searching for 3 templates, however it seems all the DL links are broken... If you can find this one anywhere for free, you are the man (videohive . net/item/model-portfolio/476460)

    This is what i do everytime, BUT for AE to work you really need a good video card and memory. And i dont recommend CS4 because it's full of bugs, instead use CS5. Anyways nice job OP.

    The OP spoke with me a few days back about creating videos and his advice is ON POINT!!!

    If you sell to offline clients, the rate goes up considerably and dramatically. There is a thread on TP where the seller charges $1000.00 per minute for each video but he was offerering TP members a discount of $400.00 per minute. The problem was, very few IMers are going to pay those rates. BUT, offline clients expect to pay those types of rates and they are not phased at all by $1k per minute. Don't waste your time selling videos on 5er unless you are pressed for cash.

    Dbyrn, you get a Rep + thanks for that awesome share! I had never heard of that site until now. Checked it out and talk about being impressed. They cover just abaout every genre and have an easy to navigate control panel and ordering is a breeze.

    Quick tip:

    For those who are thinking about/currently getting the VideoHive templates for free, be careful:

    They reward users for reporting copyright violators... How people figure out if you're violating copyright and using the template without purchase, I have no idea. Don't even know what the penalties are, looks like you'll just get a DMCA.

    But anyways, just wanted to give people a heads up (as I'm too afraid to use illegally obtained templates myself, for fear of Envato asking me for a copy of my license for a template =P)
