Audio Visual Software Directory

We've put together a database of some of the best software options available for all your audio visual projects.

Struggling to figure out which software option suits your needs, skills, and budget?

At Arts Emergency we understand that the cost of creative software can be a barrier for many young people who are looking to develop their creative skills. That’s why we’ve created a database of free, open source and single purchase software for those looking for alternatives to pricey brands/subscriptions.

This resource lists many different types of software for activities such as:

  • 3D Graphics

  • Animation

  • Digital painting

  • Film & Video editing

  • Sound Design

  • Photography

  • UX Design

  • Web development
