Free Plug-Ins for Adobe Premiere Elements 3, 4, and 7

My ongoing quest for all that is free lead me to several free plug-ins for Adobe Premiere Elements. I have been an Avid user of PE since version 1. While I love the user friendliness, as compared to Premiere Pro and other apps in this space, I have always been frustrated with the limited transitions and video effects.

Here are a few free things to spruce up your videos:
NewBlueFX Cartoonr - A freebee from NewBlueFX - Available for any version of Premiere Elements, not to mention, Premiere Pro, Avid, Final Cut, Pinnacle, Vegas and Ulead. All you need to do is register it and they will send you and activation code via email.

Burger Transitions - Some, but not all are compatible with PE3, 4 and 7. However you should copy these files into the directpry C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0\Plug-ins\en_US as opposed to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Premiere 6.x\Plug-ins as instructed by the website. I have found that the following work:
fx-Burger01 - Crossfade
fx-Burger06 - Rays
fx-Burger10 - Spiral
fx-Burger11 - Dream
fx-Burger13 - Curtain
fx-Burger16 - Radar
fx-Burger17 - Mosaic
fx-Burger18 - Marbles
fx-Burger19 - Dream 2
fx-Burger21 - Cuboids_II
fx-Burger22 - Logo
fx-Burger23 - Bloom
fx-Burger24 - Firestorm
