Video editing software creator Red Giant releases new online community

If you do a lot of video editing, you may be familiar with Red Giant, maker of many useful post-production tools and plugins.

Red Giant, the maker of special effects video and motion graphics software, has jumped into community building with the launch of Red Giant Universe. This new community, which went online as a public beta today, offers members access to a vast variety of free tools for editing, filmmaking, visual effects, and motion design.
