Thanks Joe, i will check it out.  And how do these sites work?  Once you pay, you are free to use whatever you want/wherever you want without any additional charges or attribution?  For example you can even use it on your YouTube video?

You can download clips and use them for life with no restrictions. However if you don't keep a backup of those files and your computer crashes you're out of luck. I keep backups myself even though I rarely use them.

When you say "video editing" assets, that can mean a multitude of things.

One of my favorite sites is PresenterMedia.com. For roughly $50 per year you get access to all sorts of visual media. Customizable images and videos, clip art, PowerPoint templates, etc.

http://www.PresenterMedia.com

Another site is VideoBlocks. I think their fee is $99 per year. I picked up a Black Friday deal and got a year for $49.

http://www.videoblocks.com

One thing I absolutely HATED about VideoBlocks is that once I subscribed, I would perform a search for something I needed. I'd find EXACTLY the clip I wanted. But lo and behold they now have mingled the stuff you get included with your subscription with other stuff you have to pay substantially extra for. (Far more than the yearly fee) I chatted with their support and they configured my account so I don't even see the marketplace crud.

Then there's Peter's Callouts.com that offers interesting stuff.

And another place I like is MotionLoops.com. MotionLoops offers a free download on a regular basis just for subscribing.

http://www.MotionLoops.com

Cheers... Rick :)

This is good stuff, Rick.  I assume the free items on Motion Loops are free for us to use any way we choose without attribution?  Do you know of any other free sites for various components of a presentation?  For example pixabay.com is great for images and Soundbible is good for sounds.

Wow - I just checked out Digital Juice. Looks fantastic but because many of these sites are US, us Australians have to tack on another $30 - $150 on top of the US cost. It makes these sites way outside my price range. Must be time to learn to make my own stuff.

Indeed Digital Juice is quite proud of their stuff. Way out of my league!

I became aware of them during one of the Camtasia installs a while back. There were a few limited DJ samples included.

Any insights about callouts.com?  I believe TechSmith recommends that one.

Hello,
Just as an FYI, you can find more media to use on the TechSmith website here:
https://www.techsmith.com/camtasia-library-media.html

... just in case you haven't checked that out, yet.

Thanks Kelly, some nice items, but I am sure you would agree that there aren't too many items.  I just took the Udemy course with Ron Hogue.  I know he won some kind of Camtasia instructor course a few years ago.  I must say, he is a great instructor and a wonderful asset to Camtasia.  Because of his course, I am defintely going to get a license for Camtasia. 

Do you have any suggestions for other media libray sites in addition to Digital Juice and CallOuts?
