Digital Juice Pilot Pro
Unlimited resources match your creativity
Digital Juice has been around as a company for nearly two decades, serving up stock footage for editors of all kinds. In the early days, Digital Juice delivered physical media to members. These days, the company is expanding the way it does business, so you can expand your business.
QUICK REVIEW: Digital Juice is in the initial Pilot Program release phase of their new subscription model. At $499, the Pro Pilot program at Digital Juice is an amazing deal, with even more upgrades available if you need. Access to footage and templates is easy. Pilot program also gives you access to a professional private community.
DEEP REVIEW: There's much more to Digital Juice's Library for Pro Pilot. Each day new elements are added. Each month, new stores are added. DMO Channels will review and give you new use cases for them in this series.
Editors often look for stock footage to fill out graphic beds in their timelines. Some editors will spend hundreds of dollars on footage for a single edit project. Digital Juice is offering a new program that gives editors the quality footage they expect, for a single price. For a limited time, you can become part of a PILOT PROGRAM that makes allows you to get Digital Juice content footage for life, for less than $500. Yes, that's right.

If you're familiar with Digital Juice, you know they have a library of animated backgrounds, transitions, lower thirds, stock footage, sound effects, seamless textures, animated mattes, graphic borders - the types of things that editors need for nearly every edit.

The advantages of the Pro package will allow you to craft many more elements for your edit, so you can make it uniquely yours.
The landing page shows just a few of many categories you may want to start in...
One of the reasons many studios use stock footage is because they want to deliver on a budget. The problem with using stock footage whole, is that the elements are easily identified or can become commonplace quickly. The projects and templates in the Pro plan should help you quickly create unique clips easily, and change them up as you need.
Over the next few weeks, I'll take a look at some of the features that can really help make your edit shine - easily. It's not going to be easy, Digital Juice adds new content all the time, there's a deep bench of elements to review. However, I'll looking to help the average editor in areas that they may not be comfortable in.
Templated Projects. Another reason you'll want look into the Digital Juice Pro pilot program is for its access to templated projects. As an editor, you may have heard of Apple Motion, or Adobe After Effects, and you've probably seen some of the great animations you can produce with those applications, but learning them is just not something that you have time for. The Pro pilot program includes solutions for you too. New stores added monthly (you can see a few on the landing page without even signing up:
Maybe this is all the convincing you need: For a limited time, it's only $499 to get access to footage, templates and more (only $249 for the standard package). READ ON. Otherwise, remember this article after you've read more reviews on DigitalMediaOnline.

Getting started is really pretty simple. Once you purchase one of the options, there are only three things left to do.
DOWNLOAD WORKBENCH (a small small piece of software)
DOWNLOAD JUICER (another quick download)
You're ready to get going! There's no reason to do a full blown overview of the three part process, because Digital Juice has created a couple of really easy guides on their website.
Still haven't made up your mind? Unfortunately, this isn't like other reviews on DigitalMediaNet, where you can jump back in and pick up where we left off. (At the time of this article): the PILOT program's pricing is a limited time offer! With new content being added frequently, Digital Juice is a huge library for any editor or motion graphics artist looking for help getting to deadline, staying within budget, or even just trying to find some community support.
A couple of quick notes after you've downloaded the Juicer, check out the Preferences in the application. There are options allowing you to choose where you'll store files locally (you don't need to download them all, just what you need to use), and more importantly, which host applications you'll want to open some templates with. Get to that first.
If you have questions about what to do once you've gotten your account set up, don't worry - there's a huge community waiting for you inside the private forums - including direct access to technical staff. Digital Juice is offering "Lifetime" Pilot memberships to anyone who signs up during this initial phase.
Next up: A look at the community of Digital Juicers. Juicers? Maybe there's a better term for the user base.
