Cyborg Knight – Rigged & Animated Low Poly RPG/FPS Character

Cyborg Knight, designed, modeled, textured and render in Blender 3D, for game engines with BSDF material capabilities. It is an FPS character that can double as RPG character. Fully rigged and animated. It features quad polygons instead of tris, in case you wanted to have tris you can simply divide the quads, otherwise it would be irreversible.

Obviously you can use it for so much more than just games. Like short films, visual effects or motion graphics. It comes with a wide variety of skins, in all the colors of the rainbow, plus black and white (see gallery)

It is fully rigged and its animations come as actions. It’s not game-ready, so you can still have some freedoms to customize it, fine-tune the animations and the textures/materials, like I said, it comes with 9 different skins, all of which are BSDF materials and come with Diffuse, Metal, Roughness, Normals, Emission and SSS maps.

There’s also damage textures (again, see gallery), in case you want the character to die or get battle damage. You can change the color of the skins by going into Photoshop or GIMP and using Hue and Saturation to shift the desired color (red, orange, blue etc.) to your desired tone and hue, alternatively you can change the emission color as well to change the color of the light-up parts to your desired hue.

New After Effects Template: Calm Waters Logo Reveal

Calm Waters - Logo Reveal After Effects Template

Peaceful tranquility is what this After Effects template was designed to portray. After so many explosive, violent and epic AE templates, it was only fair to give the action a rest and what a better way than with a calm sea or lake. Continuing with the aquatic theme from the last template, this one offers a completely new perspective; Rather than UNDERwater, this one shows the water surface instead, with waters tranquil enough to reflect the text hovering above it.

This After Effects template is relatively simple in terms of inner workings and doesn’t have too many options, however you can still fine-tune the color of the sky and water to match your needs. As always, the “metallic” text isn’t actually rendered via any special plugin, all you need is After Effects’ Classic 3D render engine, which is the one selected by default when you open After Effects.
The lens flare is ALSO pre-rendered, and it will be occluded by whatever text you put there, so you don’t really need any plugin for it either.

New After Effects template: Spiral Galaxy Logo Stinger

After Effects template: Spital Galaxy

After the unimaginably small, the unimaginably big! What am I talking about? Outer space, of course. Spiral Galaxy is one of those After Effects templates that I’ve been waiting forever to release. First of all because I love astronomy and celestial bodies, but second, because I’ve been working on this template for a very long time. I just couldn’t get it right! I have tried just about every single trick in the book and tried to create this effect through different methods, but every single time, it somehow managed to look terrible. Until I decided to just go with an actual particle system and use the forces of nature at play in an actual galaxy like rotation and gravity.
Colorization wasn’t an easy feat either,  in this After Effects template, I wanted people to be able to colorize the galaxy just the way they wanted, so I had to layer it and use plugin upon plugin, stacked on top of each other to create a vibrant color scheme that looks good.
This After Effects template does not require any third party plugins, as everything is pre-rendered and ready to use, even the 3D text. All you have to do is customize it with your own color scheme and voila!

Nevermore Graphics: Pixelized – 8-Bit Pixel Art Logo Stinger

Pixelized - Pixel Art, 8-Bit Graphics AE TemplateDo you like pixel art? 8-Bit graphics?? Old school videogames??? If so, then this After Effects template is for you! I just finished this little pixellated jewel, even the soundtrack and sound effects have 8-Bit elements in them.
At first I was unsure of how far should I go with the whole old school videogame theme. Should I do just pixellated text? 8-Bit videogame graphics? I spent hours trying to come up with an ideal format, to materialize text out of pixels in a visually appealing way. Then it hit me: Why not 3D Pixel art? And I know, I know, 3D pixels are called “Voxels”, which actually stands for “volumetric pixels” but almost no one knows what a “Voxel” is, so for now we’ll just call them 3D pixels. Anyway, massive digression aside, I ended up doing some nice pixel materialization in this After Effects template. When time came to add the sound effects, I tried everything. But the only thing that could go well with pixel art is 8-Bit sound effects and music. Hit the break to watch a video preview of this After Effects Template and some links!
