1. Handy Seamless Transitions — Adobe After Effects Presets

Every video editor needs transition effects at their disposal. Even though basic video editing apps feature some built-in transitions, this pack is worth the purchase. It includes exciting animated transitions you can use to switch scenes.

2. Lower Thirds — After Effects Project Elements

A lower thirds pack is also a great buy for beginners. Many videos will need some type of overlay or explainer text on top of the video, and these clean and easy effects are a breeze to use. Drop in your own text and change the highlight color to make it feel right at home in your own video.
