I've found making templates for folders in Finder, and Premiere/AE templates have saved me a lot of set up time.

I have a template folder that has all the parts of post production I need, along with a premiere file already loaded with commonly used assets.

Do you guys have any other tricks for templates/repetitive tasks for post-production? See More

I've spent the last 6 months creating my template for Premiere Pro.  I've gathered music, video, photos, and sound effects and created the file structure of the template and have written down the workflow, in general at the moment, with more detail coming soon.  Now I'm working on templates for specific portions of my YouTube videos for my channel and deciding on the look I want it to have, plus the look of the titles and lower thirds, and the transitions.  I think my biggest worry is going overboard.  I want to use particle effects, transparency, and light effects - so I'm probably going to be using After Effects.  

I want my YouTube videos to make the viewer feel good and look forward to my next video, and feel expanded and inspired.  I'm not sure how I'm going to deal with LUTs yet, but I know color grading is going to be important to me.  My guess is that the music and LUTs will pull things together into a cohesive unit.  

This is a brand new YouTube channel, and I'm really looking forward to creating the best template that I can so that I can quickly and easily create videos for frequent posting.  So, yes, a well-defined template and workflow is very important to me... before I even start to create videos.  Once I start, I won't have time to create videos from scratch, the template is a must.   

Plus, you should be able to look at any of my videos and realize that you know the channel that the video came from, because of the template, and yet still be a bit surprised and amazed at each individual video.  

As far as on-going, I'm using Clickup to handle project management of the YouTube channel.  I chose it above Asana and others because I can make it do more and it is inexpensive.  It will especially be helpful once I have the money to hire others.


I was listening to an Impact Plus group and found one new resource, and thought I'd ask for more here.

I'm interested in
video creation and editing using Adobe Premiere and Adobe After Effects
social media for YouTube, Facebook, and Pinterest - especially changes and improving what I do
anything to improve my course, community, or coaching
To make this beneficial to more people, perhaps you want to use a standard format so it is easily searchable:
topic / URL / any comments

I'll start it off by posting the resource I found in the ImpactPlus group:

After Effects/Premiere https://motionarray.com lots of resources, some free

Dear Impact plus community, Does anyone have any sales ideas that have worked for them that could potentially work for me. I need help in generating sales? See More

Start by writing a book and market it as a lead magnet.
Ever since the core web vitals Google ranking update was announced, I have been trying to get our website up to speed (pun intended). In the beginning, I did a lot of research, tried to find out if I could fix things myself, and then ultimately found that the outside website team we use would have to perform updates.

This website team has been working since March to try different fixes for our website to improve our LCP and CLS scores. They updated our Wordpress, they tested the sticky nav as a contributing factor, and we purchased a plug-in to optimize all 10,000 of our photos. Next, they tried the Cloudways Breeze caching plugin but it disabled all of our homepage videos so it had to be turned off.

After the updates, we still are not... See More

I'm surprised you had to purchase a plug in to optimize your images, I thought google had a free way to optimize images.  That's what I intend to use.  I am wondering about your URLs.  Why do they need to be improved?  I've never run into this before.  Thanks.
In an industry where the expectations are to kill or be killed, Microsoft took a stand in their new update to Windows 11, saying that, "Operating systems and devices should mold to our needs, not the other way around."

With that in mind, Microsoft's CEO continued in talking about how they want to bring technology more together. "[Microsoft's] technology is being built to work with as many products as possible, including software for competing Google Android smartphones."

The article continues, talking through Windows's goal of allowing developers and even Google with their apps to go onto Windows and the Microsoft Store and sell their programs for next to no commissions to Microsoft itself, a heavy shift from the industry standard.

Awesome!  We should be using industry-standard stuff, not stuff that only works with Microsoft or Apple.  Thanks for the article.
