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 . 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.
