Video asset portal Artlist has announced what it’s describing as the “ultimate all-in-one subscription for video creators.” Dubbed “Artlist Max,” the new monthly membership will give users access to royalty-free music, sound effects, stock footage, templates, plugins, and FX Home editing software optimized for Artlist’s catalog of media assets.

Let's take a deeper look.

New Age for Stock Assets?

“Artlist Max is a great option for creators like me who constantly need access to a lot of different assets,” said IMHO Reviews founder Vitaliy Lano. “However, if you are just looking for specific assets, you will still be able to purchase separate subscriptions such as stock footage and video templates or music and SFX,”

Founded in 2016, Artlist began as a royalty-free music platform for content creators looking to navigate the complicated minefield of using music for online video. Within the next six years, the portal has grown to manage over 800,000 digital assets and has expanded to include video stock footage (through its sister site Artgrid), music, sound effects, as well as templates, motion graphics, and other video assets through its partnership with FX Home.

Artlist Max promises unlimited access to all these media assets and custom plugins for Premiere Pro, After Effects, Apple FinalCut Pro, DaVinci Resolve, and other video editing apps. In the modern world, where digital content creation is the foundation for big brands and small creatives, stock assets are becoming a critical aspect of any project.

Which Tier Is Right for you?

The new Artlist service is divided into multiple tiers, which provide a varying degree of access to individuals, teams, and enterprise levels. Let's look at them in more detail to find out which one is best for your needs. 

  • Max Social: For $29.99, Artlist Max Social provides content creators who focus on social media assets custom-fitted to such portals as YouTube, TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, and even Podcasts. The license offers users the right to publish to one channel for each portal and link to them in their advertising. The Max Social Plan also gives users access to FXHome’s HitFilm Creator editing software.
  • Max Pro: $39.99. For $10 a month more, the Artlist Max Pro plan will provide all access to the Max Social features, plus worldwide commercial work, websites, film broadcasting rights, wedding videos, and other features. Members will be able to upgrade their stock footage to RAW/Log footage for an additional $19.92 a month. 
  • Max Teams: Starting at $68.00 a month, the Artlist Max Team plan will cover access to the Max Pro tier for between two to seven team members.
  • Max Enterprise: The Artlist Max Enterprise Tier provides assets for large companies with over 100 employees and includes everything in Max Pro, plus custom media licenses and curation services. As in the past, those interested in this tier must contact Artlist for a custom rate.

While subscription plans aren't always the best options long-term, especially if you're not turning a profit on your projects, if you're pumping out content at a regular pace, Artlist Max is a solid solution that creatives should really look into. 

All media assets and licenses are usable for the duration of the subscription.  Artlist also offers a free one-year subscription to the first 100 creators who sign up for a free Artlist Account

So what do you think? Is yet another subscription service dipping into your wallet every month of benefit for access to an unlimited number of media, sound, and musical assets?

Or is this an Adobe killer?
