As many of you know, the team behind Aetuts+ is also responsible for a site called VideoHive which we launched in December last year. VideoHive is a marketplace for buying and selling motion graphics and AE Project files and as our only sponsor pays the mounting bandwidth bills to keep this site running!
Today I'm showcasing some of the best files on our marketplaces over here on Tuts+ to show our audiences not only what's available to buy, but for potential authors what sorts of things you can sell!
