Great tools…

Here are some great tools I have come across for creating great visual stuff (video and print):

  1. Art Director’s Toolkit: Designed for print designers, it also works well for video. One of the great features that I like is the swatch viewer for Pantone colors and with the ability to find related colors. (For Mac and Win)
  2. ColorTheory and ColorTheory Pro: Lets you pick our four colors that work with other existing colors (like an existing logo). (For Mac and Win)
  3. Director’s Boards: Allows you to do quick storyboards and print them out or show them as a slide show. (For Mac and Win)
  4. SnagIt: Great for grabbing screen shots. (For Win only)
  5. GrahicConverter X: Reads over 175 graphic file formats and exports 75. Awesome. (Mac only)
  6. IrfranView: Reads over 120 file formats and exports 20. A great tool. (Win only)
  7. iTunes: The mac-daddy of all music library tools (even if you don’t own an iPod). (for Mac and Win).
  8. TransType SE: Converts fonts from Mac to Win and vice versa. (For Mac and Win)
  9. Windows Media Encoder: Easy encoder to use (although you can’t set a lot of options). It does support HD encoding, as well as variable bitrate, two-pass, and batch encoding. (Win only)
